    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.
    Greeting from Brooklyn, NY and anywhere else :)

    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.
