Bike rack fabricated from abandoned bicycle frames and parts. The design tweaks and repurposes what a bike was into a supporting and securing structure.

The sidewalks of New York City contain wounded and damaged bicycles from partial robberies and foulplay of bent rims.

I feel for the cyclist who aproaches his or her locked bike only to notice that a wheel or seat or more is missing. In too many cases the bike is abandoned and more vandals take more parts and rust sets in.

Installed at Le Petit Versailles Community Garden, 2nd Street near Avenue C, Lower East Side, New York City, removed late 2010.
