Leonardo loved horses: the mobile and powerful engine of his era. Some English design students who love horses have created a coconut shell 'clopper' for bicycles…a not to a movie joke about horses. Create your own 'clopper' for a horse and rider on wheels. Combine Leonardian mechanical ingenuity with a Leonardian flair for detail and decoration.
