Bicycle Taxidermy

Bicycle Taxidermy started out as a sort of symbolic memento mori gesture by London-based architectural designer Regan Appleton for his dad’s discarded mountain and road bikes. It’s elegant and elegiac. If you have a beloved broken-down bike that will never be ridden again, it’s time to salvage it from the storeroom: mount its handlebars on a plaque and on the wall as your very own commemorative bicycle taxidermy. You had good times together once. Show some respect.
