Pimp My Bike!
Once upon a time, I learned how to ride a bike and it became my main method of transportation. My bicycle was very good but bright red and plain and didn't go with my style very well. Then one day I found a kid's stick pony at the Thrift Store Dumpster...

  • How to make a bikes. Magic Unicorn Bicycle - Step 1
    Step 1

    I severed the head of the stick pony and attached it to my bike. Then I realized that there were buttons on the ears, so I put some batteries in the brain. Now when you push the button you can hear a "Neighhhhh!" followed by a clip-clopping of heels and then when you push it again you hear a snort. I made the horn with a christmas icicle ornament I found at the 99 cent store and looped a strong wire bar around it and stuck it into a hole in the head and reinforced it with superglue. Last but not least, the pony came with a small pouch to put a cell phone or ipod in.

    I decorated the rest of the bike with purple and pink spray paint duotone. Some fake flowers were added...

    Finally I added a small license plate that I picked up for a mere 50 cents at a yard sale and used the included stickers to spell The Forest.

Hey, lady. I just got a yard sale bike, a few days ago...and I'm thinking about turning it into a trusty steed! The thrift store down the road(ironically, I can ride my bike to it) has one brown stick horse, and one stick-bull! I don't know if I want to be a rodeo rider, though...

How did you attatch the head to the bike? I just went to the thrift store and bought two stick ponies for this!
