bike part art...

As Bike to Work Week comes to end, this fun craft re-purposes broken bicycle parts and can become a permanent fixture in your yard or home.

I started with an old hub,

and a broken fork cartridge.  A bash guard worked perfectly for the base.

The fork cartridge had to be bent at a 90 degree angle and the hub slid right on.

To make the petals I hot glued brake cables into the spoke holes.  This is the perfect craft for the bike geeks in your life! 

Thank goodness I have a whole year before the next Bike to Work Week, I definitely will need the time to come up with more crafts!

Good use of a random item.

How do you think of all these things?
