The Bonecycles of Reese Moore

Bone-Motorcycle-001

I made an 8′ T-Rex for Halloween for my kids in 1995. After Halloween, I then sold it to a bar in the Daytona area. Jokingly I said I could make a motorcycle for the bar, which the owner said couldn’t be done. I took that as a challenge and created one some time later. When the bar owner saw it, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

[U]sually takes about 3-4 cow skulls, 2-3 alligator skulls, goat, wolf, raccoon, turtle, and pig bones. Also it takes 1 cow backs for each of the wheels. There have been only 9 completed so far. Usually I can only build one per year.

They have been sold to a boat and motorbike museum in Georgia, a pawn & gun shop in Kentucky. Also, several have gone to Frogger’s Saloon and Ripley’s Believe it or Not.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
