A young Frank Zappa plays the bicycle on The Steve Allen Show

From Open Culture: "Frank Zappa bringing his own brand of offbeat music to the American airwaves in 1963. Only 22 years old and not yet famous, Zappa appeared on the Steve Allen Show and made music with some drumsticks, a bass bow, and two garden-variety bicycles — and nothing more."

"The video above gives you mostly the prelude to the actual music. Then, in the first video below, Zappa gives a demo of the instruments."

"Next comes the Concerto for Two Bicycles, which features the show’s house orchestra joining the cacophonous fun."
