The Beginning Of "The Fish Bike"

Thats an awesome idea, kind of got me thinkin'... Space Shuttle bike, anyone?

Ha Ha yes Space Shuttle indeed !...That's Sort of where Part of this Idea Came From....After looking at 1959 Cadillac Tail lights for a year, I wanted to Put half a rear end of one on a bike ....Just because, not because it would look cool but because i'd never seen anything like it .... Then after more research i found out the whole space race was why there were even fins on cars in the first place ....( i also found out people would prob murder me for butchering an old caddy).....
 
mock up stage

What did I just stumble into. Now I'm curious but did I miss why you were doing this? Just a fun project?
 
it just came to me like a lightning bolt...same way Indian Larry came up with the Chain Frame...It will not only be a fun Project, But the fins are like razor death spikes which is kinda cool, also keeps the cages from tail gating
 
So some sort of a Deathrace 2000 setup. At any point you can decide to go on a homicidal, blender-esque killing spree. I really like it now.
 
That's Fintastic

I found This Piece to the Puzzle in the road while walking the dog (R.I.P. Salem Dog has since passed and will be missed)
Planning on using it as seat padding

I just started reading this thread. I have to admit - weird idea. But intriguing none the less.
