Bicycles made from scrap cars

Interesting recycling project, with a nice fabrication video on the site. The welds look a little scruffy though, to my untrained eye.

Interesting enough idea, but it's kind of a letdown after reading the thread title. The vid is more like "Bicycles decorated with scrap from cars".

There was a time when cars and bikes were made from the same stuff. It would be difficult to find a bicycle in a car these days.
