Repurposed Wheel

Not sure if this is the correct sub-forum but here it is anyway. I made this from an old crappy wheel I had. Chrome steel wheel, Shimano 333 hub with maillard freewheel. just removed the axle and hacked the center portion of the hub body and put in a clock movement.

My wife likes it. I figured she wouldn't but it's right above our tv in the living room.

That's pretty nice. It would be cool if the whole wheel turned with the hour hand.

Here's the one I made a few years ago.

Nice job. Did you have to true the wheels first before repurposing them?

Part of a carbon rim becomes an expensive hanger worthy of hanging your Tour de France Yellow Jersey
