These Bicycles Made From Old Cars Are Gorgeous and Green

Bicycled is a new company from Lola Lowe Madrid that's building bikes out of junked cars. While that sounds like it could be a recipe for disaster, the results are actually amazingly beautiful.


Each bike is hand-built from parts scavenged from old cars on junkyards. Think frames made of old space frames, saddles upholstered using leather seats, quick releases made from old knobs, and "chains" made from fan belts. There're even lights made from disused turn signals.

The result is a beautiful looking bike, rich in history and kind to the planet. The best bit? This shit is actually real: you can sign up to join the queue and actually get your hands on one of these things. While there's no confirmed pricing yet, you can bet they'll be expensive. [Bicycled]


I'd rock it. People will call me a hipster, I wouldn't care. I like bikes, I like cars, I like this. I'd prefer a timing chain instead of a timing belt though. And a more relaxed frame geometry, more of a british style roadster instead of a sporty frame, in spirit of the cars the bike was made from.
