Dirt Bike

This little daredevil is all set to go off-roading around your lawn or garden. The crazy critter is made by artist Fred Conlon from reclaimed steel, combining sweet charm and a wicked sense of humor. And while it looks wild enough to cruise right your begonia bed, he's really just looking for a good home and perhaps a garden gnome to eat.

Check out our Wheelie Desktop Sculpture!

Made in the Utah.

Fred Conlon

Raised in Colorado, Fred Conlon lives now in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he makes garden sculptures out of recovered objects. For his helmet sculptures, he uses real recovered World War II helmets. "It is very satisfying to transform something once used in war into a peaceful garden decoration," he says. His work has been featured in Niche Magazine, the Salt Lake Tribune and HGTV. What would he be if he weren't an artist? "Happy...just kidding!" he answers. "I can't imagine doing anything else."

    This sculpture was the perfect addition to our front steps! My son does BMX stunt shows and this guy bears a striking resemblance... LOVE IT!
    Remember that these are steel sculptures and will naturally rust unless you coat them.

      Comments about NO HANDS GARDEN SCULPTURE:

      In August 2013 my Dad hopped on a bike to see if the tires needed more air before he placed it in the neighborhood garage sale. Losing his balance,in a flash he found himself flying down the driveway only to crash inside the open garage. He sustained a serious fracture to his femur resulting in 2 surgeries and a protracted period of recovery and therapy. This little guy gave him a huge belly laugh and lifted his spirits. It is on the step of the fireplace and he proudly shows it off to all visitors. I told him it belongs outside, but he insists it is too nice to be subjected to our Wisconsin winters (which are still going on by the way). Thank you to Mr. Conlon for your creativity and skill. We will laugh with this little guy for a long time.
