Insane homemade bike looks ready to ride out of the junkyard

Bike modder Peter Wagner put this crazy monstrosity together, apparently hoping it would be able to handle terrain as diverse as water, sand, mud and pavement. Yes, those big back wheels are actually trampoline frames.

Other crazy parts involve flippers on the wheels, a plastic lawn sign in the front wheel and what looks like parts from about 10 other bikes all cobbled together. It's certainly ambitious, I'll give him that, but I'm not sure I'd feel safe atop this mighty metal steed.

He plans to take it for a test ride this weekend to see how it all works. My advice: get a tetanus shot first.
