    Bicycles as lawn or garden art?

    There are two in front yards of the neighborhood near my work. One is a 26" cruiser with faded original paint and rear wire baskets that have flower pots in them. The other is an older Wal-Mart style 10 speed, which is completely painted (including tires, chain, etc.) in contrasting earthy flat and bright fluorescent colors. No matter how many times I go by, they never fail to catch my attention.

    Do you have, or know of any "garden variety" bikes?

    There's a house around the corner from where I live that has a large three wheel bike (such as might be used for a ricshaw) out in the summer. Looks like it's made of wood. The people have it on a bed of crushed stone with a border of flowers around the wheels. It actually looks really nice.

    I ride by a house, every morning that has a 1970's, red, road bike bolted to the end of a bench in their front yard. The first time I came up on it, I thought it was just an old bike that they had locked up out there. But once I got up to it, it was obvious that this was there as decoration. It looks kind of cool, actually.
    That's gonna leave a mark.
