A bicycle sacrifice on eBay

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=121828717979&alt=web

bicycle sacraficeWhile I appreciate the seller’s attempt to display his wares I can’t help thinking that this looks like the remains of a bicycle sacrifice.

Why has this poor old bike been dismembered? Why are the wheels tilted in opposite directions? What does the chain guard being displayed on the wrong side and backwards symbolize? Am I reading too much into this?

With less than two days to go nobody has gone for the $99.99 opening bid, which is a shame because this bike has a hidden secret. Look at all the pictures and you’ll see why this rusty basketcase might be worth that much money.
