Odd Bicycle Made from Bed (Jan, 1938)

That’s actually a pretty cool looking bike.

Odd Bicycle Made from Bed

An English comedian recently entertained crowds at a cycling meet by riding the odd bicycle shown above. The frame of the curious wheel was made from the head of an old iron bed, to which old bicycle parts were added.

    Love it – reminds me of the more recent radiator bike from Wobbly John. This bed bike could also have entered the Pedal Powered Furniture World Championships :D

    Also reminded me of these weird designs: http://cyclorama.net/vi…

    Not sure how many would work but they make you want to try just for kicks!
