Designer Regan Appleton, who used to attend the Royal College of Art in London, UK, is now helping bike enthusiasts hold on to their favorite two-wheelers long after they pass their expiration date.

His idea (i.e. bicycle taxidermy) is fairly simple: the bikes handlebars are taken off it and fitted onto a piece of wood.

A stainless steel epitaph will let people know all about the bike's model, its name and the years during which it was ridden.

As well as this, people can ask that a personalized message be engraved next to these specifications.

“An eccentric side project born out of too many sleepless nights at the Royal College of Art and a homesickness for the rugged Highlands. Bicycle Taxidermy first began on a couple of memento mori for my father’s once prized but long discarded mountain and road bikes,” Regan Appleton writes on the official website for this business idea.
