    Thanks for bubbling this thread back to the top. I had never seen it before.
    Here are some contributions from me.

    BEER RUN had skateboards, beer bottle, beer cans, bottle operner, plus 100+ other beer parts. Car steering wheel, chandelier tube on steering column, etc.

    More recently it also had pizza screens in the wheels before it was hung at my buddy's restaurant.

    FUGSLEY has water ski rear rack (and soon front rack too). It also has Harley Davidson motorcycle tires.

    Wheelchair wheels.

    Moped frame.

    And one I've never mentioned on this site, the motorcycle in which I dumped the engine, and turned into a pedal bike using moped parts. NONE of this one is bicycle parts.

    I had an old kickstand that was probably from a 24" that had been put on 40 years earlier so I extended it by drilling an old pool ball. The can is a used paint hardener can which holds 4 C size batteries and has a switch in the cap.
    The 8 ball really worked well in sand.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure why I didn't post this one earlier on. Sickle blade chainguard. Some farm implement for a rear fender, carb parts, and about 20 lbs of unneccessary steel.[​IMG]

    All of these were beautiful bikes. I really dug the rear hub/frontwheel suicide brake. That,and the use of car tail lights. It's also good to see peeps still riding burrito bikes. To the guy who built the drop spindles out of brake shoe backings, I gotta try that myself. I got some scrap steel laying around I think.

    i like this. hard to tell in this pic (i never took a specific pic of it) but there's a piece of square tube welded to the middle of the front handlebar for something similar, but i never worked out what it would be

    [​IMG]

    also in relation to the thread, the backrests are from a motorcycle, the thicker foam grips on the rear handlebars is pipe insulation, and the saddlebags are backpacks.
