Bicycle Taxidermy is an eccentric project by UK based designer┬áRegan Appleton. The idea first came as an attempt to immortalize his father’s old bikes that could no longer serve their purpose. “A somewhat sentimental take on a mass produced object becoming defunct, the handlebars are given the care and craft of a preserved family pet, – designer explains. – The bikes have now been re-appropriated as a family heirloom.” You have a choice of buying just a plaque (with your own epitaph text, engraved on a stainless steel plate) and mount parts of your departed bike on it. Or you can buy a plaque with the newly sources handlebars already attached. Very cool. The pieces can also be used to hang coats, bags, umbrellas and other items.
