Here Comes the Glowing ARTIKCAR!

Image: Bicycle Design

Bicycle Design is always trawling up remarkable cycle oddities. This one, the work of UK artist Ben Wilson, is modeled off the kids toys Ben remembers from youth. Though more art than daily mule, ARTIKCAR is steered by leaning the body. It was conceived for a parade masterminded by Walk the Plank, a UK "creative force of artists, theatre makers, pyrotechnicians and event engineers."

Other of Ben Wilson's art bikes include the Monowheel we covered back in '08, and the Seebikesaw, commissioned by Brooks, the legendary leather saddle-maker.
