I was down at the salva and found for $2 a pair, some great pants for riding. Babseball pants. They're short, stretchy, breathable, good fit, and long wearing. I got 3 pair and I've really been diggin em. Anyone else find some other cool stuff to repurpose for cycling?
I have a friend that found some deck booties for sailing at a thrift and he uses em as his winter booties
I use a german military butt pack as my hipsack with a seatbelt from my old volvo for a belt

I repurposed a track bike as a street bike.
I've also been known to repurpose a messenger bag as a commuter bag.
It's scary out here on the leading edge.
