That looks more like a low-budget crafts project that some kids did in one night at summer camp.

Or a drunken frat prank.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. I behold it is crap.

What would be coolest is if it were ALL duct tape, with no bike underneath.

I was just thinking that, might be cool if he didn't do the tires. He could have made a disc wheel with duct tape though.
