Missed Opportunities in Bicycle Design?

Over a period of 27 years, I have invented odd-looking bicycles. I began designing them in 1983, but added to the collection as recently as this past year. The theme has always been more or less the same: Ignore aerodynamic and structural efficiency in favor of whimsical appearance. Perhaps the designs evoke an Aesthetic of the Impractical. Of course, my bikes are not likely to be ultra-light, and with several models a rider might worry that pants cuffs could catch on art nouveau-style floral ornamentation. If it were possible to make these bikes reasonably lightweight, however, I might like to ride one.

I am making available a set of giclee (archival) prints of the images shown below on my Web page.

Some of those are beautiful, some are whimsical and all of them are awesome! I would trade my lowrider bike in any day. Keep up the good work!!

If you really want to ride something like your creations - look for a lowrider bicycle custom shop
Lowrider bicycles have probably have been around just as long as you have been dreaming them up. :)
Those first few look like something that may have been featured in Lowrider bicycle magazine as well.
