I love to see examples of repurposing, upcycling or whatever one wishes to call reusing "waste materials" for other purposes. It is even cooler when you can fashion old bike parts into parts for other bikes. Reader Dennis upcycled some old frames into a nice looking cargo rack and sent along the following text and pictures. Thanks Dennis!

Made a rear cargo rack using the chain stays from an old raleigh frame, a seat clamp from another discarded frame (chopping up a 26" mtb and a 20" bmx bike) and some miscellaneous steel tubing/flat stock and plywood. Framework was bent on a homemade tubing bender too.
