These fine amphibious machines you see above were made viewable by the work of Megulon5 as part of his ’07 expedition. It seems unusual mutations of the bicycling variety are commonplace for members of Portland’s “C.H.U.N.K. 666″ -

C.H.U.N.K. 666 is a bicycle club and civic betterment society based in Portland, Oregon, USA. Its modern incarnation was founded in 1992 or so, and is based on the classic cycling and drinking clubs of yore.
The club started when a few geeks found that the urge to create choppers and tallbikes was too strong to resist. They didn’t know it, but they were being goaded by messages from the future, which were intended to prepare their recipients for the imminent apocalypse. Our mission is unclear, but we do know that once we began riding these devices, it was difficult to stop.

Well that productivity makes sense, the coming apocalypse can be a great motivational tool! – Link
