So you think your bike is cool? Think again. These handlebars are probably the most rad bespoke cycle gear you can get your hands on: genuine deer antlers fused with recycled metal to create a completely custom and completely awesome riding experience. As the pointy horns equally custom box proclaims, you’re sure to “leave your mark.”

The on-off bars were the brainchild of graphic designer Taylor Simpson, a spark of inspiration which came to him while visiting the World’s Longest Yard Sale on New Yorks Route 127 in 2010. He found some antlers sold by a man from Kentucky, and seeing the handlebar like form, he snatched them up. The beautiful packaging design you see here, dubbed Moniker, was part of a Package Design assignment for his Fall 2012 Senior Project class with Michael Gerbino at Pratt Institute. You can already tell this fellow is going to go far. Check out more of his graphic design work at taylorsimpsondesign.com.
