Okay this a thread similar to DIY but very diff at the same time. It's for folks who are either creative and want to express it with something that is functional or for those on a budget or for those who just dont want to spend $ and decide to make/do something themselves when, what they make can be bought.
I "made" a paint job for my ride. I wrapped my frame in electric tape to keep look of the bike concealed since it was bright, neon type orange and i didn't it to catch a thiefs eye too quickly. The tape also made the bike look sexier(to me) with the contrasting colors and it keeps stratches away too.
Next is my fake fender made of water bottle plastic and electric/duck tape. Didn't feel like spending and wanted to be creative. Plus it ugly and can also be somewhat theft deterent.
double strap holder (duck tape)
Top tube protector made of bar wrap and duck tape
Innertube bar wrap (keep those extra flat tubes, they can be useful later on)
But my fav of all is my custom designed bag made from water bottle plastic and safety pins to hold it up.
Ghetto on folks
