The frame has been spray-painted black and the tyres are red-rimmed. A plastic crate has been attached above the front wheel and a shallow tub fixed behind the seat and above two panniers which sit either side of the back wheel. The shallow tub was designed to allow a portable dog houses to fit within it, thereby enabling the owner's dog to travel with him. A small fuel tank is located inside one of the panniers. The bicycle is decorated with items which include American and Australian flags, the Boxing Kangaroo flag, fluffy dice, disco balls, stickers and assorted plastic ornaments. Large black plastic bicycle mud flap covered with black sequinned fabric and decorated with gold and silver sequinned flowers, disco balls, a snowman, red ribbons and silver Christmas decorations. The mud flap can be tied onto the back of the bike and is decorated to match the portable Christmas dog house.

  • Help the British Library tag a million images

    Some of the million images the British Library have released on Flickr Commons have been added here for you to play with. The tags you add will help people find these historic images.

    They have asked people to use these special tags where appropriate: 'map', 'letter'+theletter e.g. LetterA, 'architecture', 'decoration', 'landscape', 'music', 'portrait', 'fashion'. If the image needs rotating, add 'rotatec' or 'rotatecounterc'.
