Bitter gourd plant eats bike

My girlfriend is home with her family in Japan and sent me this picture of  a bitter gourd plant growing over a bicycle.  Here is her story:

The bike was my sister’s. It was stolen when she was parking in a public parking space near the station. Then it came back after some parts were broken/stolen. In Japan, we register all the bikes with police so when they find an abandoned bike, they trace the owners and contact them. By the time the police contacted my parents, the bike was in such a bad shape that it could not be used unless we did some repair that would be expensive. So it has been kept where the bitter gourd was growing and it took over the bike.
