It's the same as when you wrap the handle on a sword; but instead of using a sword I used my bike.

Oh, and since it needs to be outside in weather, use strips of rubber inner tubes instead of cloth ribbon.
And since you need to be seen at night, use retroreflective tape instead of sharkskin.

Thanks, but after scanning the instructions, I'm thinking that a guy my age might not have that much time left. How long did it take you?

My apologies, it was a stupid blunder. I of course know that aluminum alloy is a metal.

My intent was to refer to replacing all metal parts with ones that have a "natural" aluminum alloy finish instead of the black anodizing that has become the norm for every metal part on a bike today.
