A bicycle, of sorts, under the Christmas tree

A bicycle under the Christmas tree is a dream come true for many, both young and old. Century Cycles owner Scott Cowan was surprised by his girlfriend Jo (on left, with her daughter Jordan on the right) with this custom-made weather vane in the shape of a bicycle.

Scott will be mounting the weather vane on the roof of an antique barn that he is restoring on his property.

The custom metal sculpture was hand-made by a local artisan by the name of Mr. Kim Thomas of Thomas IronWorks in Seville, Ohio. Mr. Thomas is a master blacksmith, metalworker, artist, and knife-maker. If you want anything custom made out of metal, he looks like just the guy for the job.

You can read more about Mr. Thomas and see samples of his work at his web site:
