The crank comes off of a Made in Taiwan Bianchi. It did not seem worth it to me to fix the bike so now it is in parts. The crank says sakae SX on it.

Where do I mail the door for service?

I think that's the bike nerd equivalent of a computer nerd having a wind chime made of hard disk platters...

It is basically a piece of angled aluminum that used to hold an antena and then I ground the left spindle down to fit through the angle aluminum.

cool, but won't the chainrings do a number on your door? wouldn't it be better if the chainrings were facing outward?

That angle photo is very cool. You came up with a truly unique thread subject - old bike parts/new uses

Next change out door knobs with pedals

Ahhh I see! I was wondering how the second crank was fashioned into the knocker part. That's awesome! Thanks for sharing.

The chainring is held off the door about a 1/16 inch due to the nuts on the back side. I had to drill out the bolts a little bit to pass my screws through them.

The Seven holes I put in my fiberglass door did a little number on it too. Guess the crank is there to stay. Can't take these things to seriously or you will find yourself in a cookie cutter. Nothing wrong with that either.
