How can I make a clear plastic cast of a bicycle?

Assume that I have access to a bicycle graveyard of sorts. I would like to make a clear copy that could have various LEDs or whatever shoved into it to make a lamp. It would only need to support its own weight.
Is there a paint on / cut and peel off kind of a resin that would work? I would be most interested in a method that would allow the process to be done to a complete bicycle+components, but if going one part at a time is necessary then that's fine too.
I have a low budget, no experience, and the final project can look pretty ugly as long as it is recognizably a 'bike light'.
