Rainbow Fruit Picking Bicycle” (Double Rainbow Edition)
Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young) 2015

Spray paint, resin fruit, Martone bike

These bikes were made for 2 people who could ride around the neighborhood picking fruit. Fruit comes in all colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple – apples, oranges, lemons and grapefruit, blueberries and Plums. If these bikes travel together they make a “double rainbow.” Bikes come with a fruit picker and attached handlebar fruit basket. Obviously, these bikes are made and designed for the fruit picker in mind, but I’m sure the company who designed them would recommend that fruit should not be picked whilst riding. This would be both very dangerous and irresponsible, especially with the risk of possibly causing a road collision. If this was to happen, there would be a serious case with lawyers likely involved. So, not take the loveliness away from the bike, but it’s important that they’re used appropriately!
