    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.

    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    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".

    I wondered where they got the tubes too, doesn't look to car-ish.

    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.
