Skeleton Bicycle

This skeleton bicycle by Jud Turner looks like the result of an archaeological dig from TRON world. OK, it's not meant to be ridden, but quite bizarre and fun on its own.

I saw a motorcycle with an almost identical idea at the Petersen auto museum. I remember clearly that the label said the skeleton was perfectly proportioned and would stand 9 feet high

Well, i dont have a skeleton bike, So all I have to use are my fists. Sorry.
lol yeah thats nice
I would. But that's just how I roll.
Then make one with a seat on or sit on its back :)
When I first saw it, I figured the knees and hips were hinged, so the skeleton pedaled as you do.l

I WANT A BIKE LIKE DAT BUT WITHOUT THE SKELETON it looks cool
Oh wow! It's beautiful! I really like the idea of riding a bicycle head-first, sort of like a reverse recliner. Pedaling should also be distributed between the arms and the legs (just in case either of them get tired). It's really neat art! Reminds me of a piece I just saw at MOMA in NYC... I can't remember the name of it (or it's creator), though...

I don't think it would be that fun to ride, the trail is a bit extreme (probably about 4 feet looking at the geometry :D). Unless the arms bent at the elbow and turned the front wheel without tilting, in which case the wheelbase is a bit narrow for stability. Yes I know it's not actually for riding... who wants to get a plastic skeleton and do this to a ridable bike though?
