When the fridge & freezer handles broke, out came the "bits box" - and a Flite & an SLR (with the help of an old inner tube) - what else is going on out there? Surely I'm not the only one?!

I'm disappointed. Have you never made a clock out of an old Tioga Disk Drive, a bracelet from a chain, a picture frame from a rear triangle?! Come on!

I've made a door handle out of an old stem, a titanium ring from a piece of steerer tube and a wind chime from a split up cassette but have no pics to prove any of this...

Ultimate would be the bar stool made out of manitou dorados - can't find a pic now but it was the shizzle.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Perry! I put the picture on thinking it might raise a few smiles! Damning comments cut me so deep... :D
