Absolutely! Surely you folks remember Luis Buñuel 's film (collaborating with Salvador Dali) "Un Chein Andalou?" It is a MUST for Spanish surrealism buffs!

<< Un Chien Andalou was written over the course of three-day exchange of fantasies and dreams between Bunuel and Dali. Brunuel states " Our only rules very simple: no idea or image that might lend itself to a rational explanation of any kind would be accepted." >>

Slice of eyeball anyone?

To place all this in a vintage bicycle point of reference.. I need only to point to the appropriate CR web site page here:

Actually I think that Zeus and the Spanish bike industry was located in Andalusia (the Zeus factory was in the city of Abadiano), so there must be plenty of bikes available that what would fit the theme of Andalusian time trial, touring and track bikes.
