THE RECYCLE IN REUSE, REDUCE

3 years ago

My live-in has a passion for building new things out of old and has given a whole new meaning to recycle.  He feels he has a mission to rescue discarded bikes out of landfills, back alleys and wherever else they might be.  It explains why our backyard looks like this at times.  

Some he revitalizes, retunes and re-tweaks.  Others becomes parts and they end up looking like this:

  Sunshine Cruiser   Cargo   garfield

  Racing Recumbent   Sunshine Cruiser

We had fun for a couple of years with the Sunshine Cruiser and made use of the Cargo shopping for groceries.  They have found new homes since.  We are happy that they and their young children are enjoying the bikes.  There are still many parts for more building!
