Items made from bike parts...

What have you made from bike parts that was not intended to be used as a ridable bike. Well I noticed at the end of winter my mail box post was rusting out. So I thought why not use a bike frame that I couldn't use as a bike anymore. So I took the frame and what was left of the forks for it and fabricated up a mail box post.

Here it is...

I use old spokes as a tool to clean out the bearing race on my wheels.

I also used a couple of them as data stick holders when I was passing the data sticks around a class I was giving.
