Today we are featuring art pieces for you and your bike!
How much do you love your bicycle? This bicycle cog belt buckle shows the world that your love is more than skin deep. Shane, owner and artist behind the company Skiplink, makes these beautiful belt buckles from reclaimed wood and literally brands the cog into the wood for a great aged look. We think you'll love it! Every part including the back is handmade, right here in the USA!
Value: $60 Opening Bid: $20
We are lucky enough to have two talented artists donating custom headbadges to our auction. As the highest bidder, you can customize your own artistic headbadge for your bicycle.
Laura Crawford of Tangerine Treehouse is offering one custom bicycle headbadge in your choice of sterling silver or copper. You and Laura Crawford will work together through email and sketches to shape your design ideas. When you have found the perfect design, Laura will make your headbadge, by hand, form it to fit your bike, and mail it to you.
