This unicorn bike mod is sort of exactly what it sounds like: a couple pieces of
plastic wood that attach to your bicycle to make it look like a unicorn (or a horse with a penis on its head). Just don't go crapping too many rainbows in the bike lane!
The winner of the Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010, "Horsey," is a simple kit that allows anyone to turn their roll into a gallop. The designer, Eungi Kim, explains:
'horsey' is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one's bicycle look horsey! the 'horsey' package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. the manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one's needs. through this 'horsey' project. I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet.
Awesome job, Eungi, now make me a dragon version. I mean the unicorn is cool and all, I just can't see myself gallavanting around town on it. Don't get me wrong, I love unicorns as much as the next six-year old girl, I just prefer something a little manlier when it comes to personal transport. You hear that, Eungi? AND IT BETTER HAVE A FLAMETHROWER. Plus squeaky horn.

Thanks to jb00tyslapper, who takes slapping jb00ty serious enough to name himself after it. And you know what? I respect that level of dedication.
