This started out as an ugly purple bike I used to ride back in grade four. I don't think I have any pictures of it around from when it was still purple.

It was an art class project, so I hope it's alright to post here. Smiley

The song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpy4xNAnWzM



I spray painted the bike black and used silver fabric paint to write the lyrics to the entire song all over. I then decided on what to do with the wheels.

The pictures on the wheels are all bristol board, sewn between the spokes. The blue and red pop art type wheel is a pencil crayon and Sharpie drawing. The drawing of Freddie in leather was done in charcoal. The Queen logo and the pink/purple "portrait" were both acrylic paint.

One of the most fun (and most stressful) things I've ever done!

Bubbleparty, I also have it posted on my DeviantArt, maybe that's where you've seen it? Smiley

Thanks all; it is still functional, but unfortunately the wheel "covers" make it hard to ride. They rub against the bike and I'm afraid if they rub too much, the pictures will start to wear off. Also, the tires haven't been pumped in probably about 12 years! *giggle*

I love this!  I would be way to scared to ride it though.  It's too cool to just ride around anyway!

THATS it. I knew I'd remember something like this.
Its a shame that you can't ride it everywhere... its one of the coolest bikes I've ever seen.
