Extra with a cow catcher?

I think a bumpers would do good on my extra, or why not a cowcatcher? I think the bike looks pretty neat yet odd at the same time, I know if I hit something, it's gonna save me and wreak whatever I hit, i'll post a pic of what I made soon

For sure - you'll notice the beefy cat-guard on the front of my Bike Friday Tikit. I can plow through pet-infested urban environments without a care in the world...

A hay fork mounted on the front rack maybe? You could hide it under a big basket, just fork ends sticking out..

One problem I see with hanging stuff in front of the wheel is that if it ever falls off, it'll wreck you.

LOVE IT. Dude...I know it would be a hassle, but painting all that stuff one flat color would take it to Mad Maxville!

It is getting painted, Maybe camo color or flat black, as for hanging stuff, it's all chained, nothing will fall, if A bike was a tank, this is what it would look like, i'm even putting plates of alloy in parts of it, It's very heavy but it goes good, I love it so much, I drive none of my other bikes but this one, wonder what others say when they see it, proberly WTF is that

"2008 Extracycle made of 7 other bikes."

Rock ON with your bad self. And keep the pictures coming. I wanna see more of that fine horse of the pending Apocalypse once it's 'complete' (whatever 'complete' means).

I'll take some pics tomorow when I do abit more work to it, and this bike will proberly never be compleat, I always come up with ideas for it, like what if it floated? or went in winder on tracks? I'm trying to find a car horn to put on it, you can adjust the car horns to make them sound like a trains or a boat, wonder if I should put chain between spokes to, kinda like a clicket but no clicking, I might have to switch to steel rims to, the alloy will proberly give out one dayI have two new beefy wheels if so, post your ideas, i'll try em, after all, no one here has even a xtracycle, mines the only one, no bike theifs touch it! it's so heavy i just lock the wheel then it wont go nowhere.

For a horn, how about the Air Zound? DeltaCycle.com carries it:
