Its pretty easy to do a google image search and find that the top photo is a concept by Italian designer Paolo Tesio and two of the other bikes were built by James at Black Sheep bikes. So unless the OP is either of those people, I'm pretty sure he just grabbed some pictures of cool bikes from the internet and posted them as his own.

One can always double check There's a google image search now for pictures you can find across the web.

See my list in post #30. Five of the seven posted images are all identified with respect to their builders/owners.

Most of them are very good and some amazing, especially the middle one. Looks like something out of a mad max movie, except better.

Go Google Image Search

I am sure Google Image Search tells you all the details and history of all images. My point is simply this I know Paolo Tesio personally, I was blown away to have his design to use. Joe and Crew at Black Sheep Bikes, I'm lucky enough to have been to the shop several times and they have helped motivate me. I also own one of there great bikes.
You wanna cry foul that's fine by me.
