  • Looking for some more information I have seen that it is a famous tree in Vashon Island (Washington). It seems that someone left the bike tied to the tree when he was still young and the passage of time and nature, often whimsical, have formed this curious image.

    Say the oldest of all, the bike was abandoned around 1914, a young man who went to fight in the First World War.
