Art/custom bike materials alt materials survey
DIY alt bike home builder/artists are a resourceful breed. Almost uniformly, our efforts are based on taking an existing bike frame or two and bodging it/them together with parts from other bikes and creating something new. I've seen a lots of exciting projects made from trash day recovered kid's bikes. But I want to know what are the best non-bike parts you have been repurposed for your ride? We will have two categories:
Best non-bike item you bought for use on your ride
Best non-bike bit trash picked or repurposed from within your home or workshop.
Please share your eureka items and comment on posted bits.

not quite sure if this is what you mean. the lower piece of tubing is a gutted conveyor roller from the conveyor system at work that runs the lenth of the plant. they change them all the time so i get all i can. nearly all the bikes i've played with recently have some of this tubing as part of the build.
