Attention Homeland Security!

World renowned photographer and intrepid bicycle explorer Meade Anderson sent this photograph to share with the Velo Hobo readers knowing that you, dear reader, have a twisted taste for such things.  Very little description was sent with the photograph as most true artists will allow unfettered interpretation to flow forth from the viewer.
Full Metal Touring - An Army Surplus Mad Max Bicycle

So, this is me flowing forth:

To me, this is the bicycle the Unabomber would ride if the Unabomber rode bicycles.  This bicycle screams anarchist and should not be approached by anyone but a skilled bomb technician.  Meade captures both curiosity that draws us in and the urgency to evacuate the immediate area all in the same photograph.

    I suppose it’s all relative. This rig is lighter than a Hummer H2.
