We’ve all been there. Mourning the loss of a dear two-wheeler. Perhaps it was the one you learned to ride, or a tried-and-true-hand-me-down that got you to class at school. Whatever the bond, most of us have experienced it. Bicycle Taxidermy- ‘The loving and lasting solution for your mechanical bereavement.’
Bikes have now been re-appropriated as a family heirloom. ‘Crafted in London; the taxidermy service mounts a client’s steed on a scorched or bleached European oak plaque made by Mick, a local joiner. Chrome mounting brackets fix the stem above a stainless steel epitaph etched in Argyll, Scotland, the plaque denotes the horned beasts model, pet name, dates ridden and a commemorative verse.’ So great, right? Hung prominently over the mantle, a no-kill solution prize mount.
