I posted this in the Industry forum...but Foo deserves to appreciate this too:
A customer dumped off a totalled Cannondale F-1000 in the hopes I'd give him some shop credit. Thing is, it looked like it was run over by a car...twice. Although there was very few usable parts left, I took it anyway and today when removing the barends noticed this very interesting bar plug substitute:
After prying it out I was amazed:
Yep, that's a live 16GA shotgun shell used as a plug. Heaven forbid you ever crashed and landed on it!
