We just wrapped an episode on biking and got all revved up over the potential that still lies within an old rusty bike.
My friend Dan over at the Ichi bike shop showed us the endless possibilities when it comes to repurposing bicycles.
I had a ball taking apart an old ride from the 60’s-70’s that I’ve had sitting in the yard for the past few years. I was able to really personalize it and most importantly, make it ride(able).
We cleaned things up, swapped out some old parts, installed some new ones and created a few customized features using leather scraps, salvaged wood and my favorite addition…a bit of nature.
My (creative) wheels are still turning.
This my friends, is our new ‘office’ bike…so whenever anyone feels the need to go for a ride here at work during the day…they’re doing it in true b. organic style.
If you have an old bike lying around or see one at a garage sale/thrift store, get on it….I know I will be!
- No need to toss.
- No need to buy new.
- Redo it, and ride on.
A leisurely bike ride is good for the soul.
Cheers to keeping old bikes out of the landfill!
