Reader Doug passed along a bike story that, ironically, ran on the Autos section on the BBC website. The Bicycled project is a twist on upcycling where old cars are turned into one of a kind bicycles. The only "downside" is that demand is sure to outstrip supply due to the time involved in making a single bike. Who knows though, if the popularity is there, mass production might follow.
If you have upcycled a car part or parts for use in a bike hack, please contact us so we can share it with the entire reading audience.
