Yeah but you'll get a hernia trying to lift that mess into the back of your truck.

So, I take it each lock has their own individual key?

Imagine carrying around 60+ keys, each unique to its lock and (potentially) guessing and trying each key in each lock to unlock the mass of locks...

Hell, if I was a theif and I even had the keys, I wouldn't bother trying to steal it!

It also looks like a dead boring bike...

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

It has to be either
  1. a sculpture
  2. a display outside an LBS
  3. a cyclist who seriously PO'd a bunch of other riders

I think I've seen this before. I believe it's a city's ad to say lock up your bike.

That was the first thing I thought or a practical joke in a riding club.

I don't see any lock on the saddle, 1 allen wrench and he'd be mad. Although where is his trailer to carry all the locks? Probably got stolen.

Looks like most of the locks can be Bic penned (except the lock holding the bike to the rack), so that may be what the guy uses for a key.
