Bikes As Art!

Bikes As Art!

I'm not married and I just got dumped.   tongue

Is it because my house looks like a bike store?

Who else has bikes all over the place, including the walls?

If you use bikes as ART, please post pics.

If I were single and lived alone, I would do the same thing (maybe build them up and put them on the wall) cool

I have six other built up bikes straggling around.

One of those is on the wall and the rest are in stands.

Everything else is in the box it came in.

Re: Bikes As Art!

Once my RL-20II is done I was seriously thinking of mounting it on the wall.  But then I thought about all the dust that will collect on it and the logistics of taking it down and out of the house anytime I want to take it for a spin, which wont be that often but still.  I already have a pair of skis mounted in my home office,
