Part of an uglification project to ward off would-be thieves?

No excuses. Look before you open your parked-car door. You might kill someone if you don't. Also... If you had a choice to be smacked over the head with a baseball bat - either with or without a bike helmet - which would you chose? If you say you'd prefer having a helmet on in above situation, why would you not wear one when riding your bike? Think about it...

I agree that the base should be round to enhance this lovely lamp's appearance.

The first cut is the deepest.
If you roll a suit you can pack it into a bag/backpack and it will come out wrinkle free.

All in all, I'd rather be a stud than a dud.

I have to respectfully disagree with the above comment. If someone was going to smack you over the head with a baseball bat, wouldn't you want to have a bicycle helmet on instead of no protection at all? Why would it be any different if that bat happened to be the bumper of a car? I don't like wearing a helmet, but it offers some protection, although limited in the case of an impact to the head. It's certainly better than nothing and may even save your life.

Here's an oddly-named bike. It's called the Steelwool: http://www.steelwoolbicycles.ca/

Brilliant in its simplicity. Bravo!
Where can I get that rear-wheel mounted kick stand? I like it.

By the way, it's not a decal. It's made of solid wood and I love it! And only $7 too.

@Tom Jones. It's not stealing. The material I used was from a badly damaged pylon which was smashed to pieces NOT the ones you see in the picture. Many of these broken/discarded pylons wind up in the ditch or littering areas far away from the road.

I just wanted to add one more thing. I later used the same reflective material to make a chainstay guard - which worked perfectly and added an additional reflective surface to the bike. Thanks for posting my hack Matt!
