This unexpected locked-gate bicycle  is an awesome invention by artist Stephen Williams . As fanciful as it is fun, the bike is sculpted from a bizarre combination of objects that give a couple of old gates a more mobile lifestyle. Imagine how much attention you’d get cycling this mad machine down the street!
Williams often crafts these kind of brilliant (but admittedly impractical) masterpieces, making the most of the funny side of his weird and wonderful imagination. The eccentric contraption has a nostalgic edge, and would make for a brilliant Quentin Blake illustration .
