Would be nice to see
Here's a photo of my bike with a little windpomp in Overijssel, the Netherlands. It's a tjasker, a very simple design that has been in use from the middle ages. There are only a few of them left. It was mostly used by farmers for draining their land. This one has some kind of stand, but many were mounted on a pole. If you had several poles standing on your land you could easily move the tjasker if you needed it somewhere else.
