Recycling the Cycled




Love this extensive post over at Bike Guerilla, packed with all the creative things people have done with old bicycles. Just goes to prove...Old bikes never die, some weirdo just makes a gate out of them. Much more here.

  1. Oh! Please tell me that no bikes were harmed in the making of these fences. ;-P

    These are great! Especially the rolling bike gate. Love that!

  7. may have to have my new gate made out of old bikes. I want a side sliding gate anyway, and i have the old garage door openers to automate it too.

  10. DomainS, there's lots of work being done in third world countries to turn old bikes into useful things like pedal powered washing machines and such.

    FxAbe, Why on earth would you do this to a new bike?

  12. Susan, Looks too squashed to be a brooks. Kind of chopped at the back. Could be though, I suppose. Thanks for the comment!
