Catapult is what one should do with that; or maybe a trebuchet.

i vote for trebuchet, cause there cooler, although you should probably fling cooler stuff with the cooler flinging mechanism, so flinging the catapult(bike) with the catapult(flinger) is a better fit.

Ugh, hi-ten steel?

And I vote for a ballista. Those things are sweet. A trebuchet would suffice I suppose.
