Introducing to you my Bike/Sculpture ..

Hi,
happy to show you my new Bike/Sculpture
I'm not really a cyclist (at least for the last 10 years) but my passion for anything moves on wheels still influences me and my work, I'll be making more sculptures like this in the future
Hope you all like it!
for more you can check my website: https://www.aboudfares.com
for a video


regards

oh it's a real fun to ride, I needed sometime to trust it on the road but it does ride smoothly even it weighs 25kg but I had no problem going uphill on the lowest gear, the frame it self weighs 15kg as I used the iron rods to make it. however going fast on a bike/sculpture like this won't be recommended.

Yes, definitely an artistic interpretation of the soul of a bicycle. Nice work, mate.

When I saw the first pic I didn't anticipate it could actually be ridden.

That looks like a bike that Capt. America would rock. Awesome piece of art!

Nice work Aboud.

Saw this on another popular message board (board software censored the name, inexplicably) a few years ago and was quite impressed / amused by it. The shaggy fur reminded me very much of the dog I had at the time. Yours looks much more practical. but not quite as amusing.

Dang did you make that from welding it together? That looks like a complicated project. MIG or TIG?
