Description:
These bike racks are not your everyday bike racks. There are three different designs and similar in nature with each other. The first bike rack is a leaf with decorative recycled glass inserted into the center. During the day the sunlight illuminates the glass giving this bike rack another dimension. The second bike rack is a lady bug with glass eyes. The dots are steel balls that can spin with a little push. We installed this one next to an ice cream shop for the little ones to enjoy. The third bike rack is a dragonfly with wildly large glass eyes. In the sun, they absorb sunlight and illuminate a bright aqua color.
