Love the fins. And the tanks. And the striped trap box lid. And...ok, all of it.
Actually, this is kind of a Pee Wee Herman/GB mash up, since that looks like the same bike from Pee Wee's Great Adventure. "I'm a loner, Dottie. A 'buster."

As the shop name says, these are *not* cut with a laser. They're done by hand - and there are lots and lots more designs at the link. Hat tip!
You guys realize you're only encouraging my Labyrinth addiction by sending me cool Labyrinth links, right? You're incorrigible, all of you. PLEASE NEVER STOP.
Case in point: behold!
Made by Ale Buz of BuzHandMade, who has a whole Labyrinth clay collection here. (Plus lots of other goodies from The Never Ending Story. OoooOOooh.)
