Okay, this one has to win...

A bottle cleaner, a speedometer cable, and a power drill:

Yes, it does, doesn't it? Looks like a post WWII Sheldon. The fancy one with the motor BELOW instead of above.

using a ratchet strap from a trailer/truck to compress a fork leg so the valve retaining bolt can be removed.



It worked fantastically two days ago once i got the right attachment for my rattle gun.

Is this an inappropriate use of tools?

Here's the link to the trip it came from. Fun times.

Here's our hammer (An adapter a passing propane truck had) and chisel (Stanley slotted screwdriver).


The remnants of an errant bolt are keeping us from our trip!



Ta-daa!!



Speaking of inappropriate tools for the job...

I did something along the same lines... Found a lady on a country road who had run out of gas. I propped up the tank off of my SV, and disconnected the fuel line from the carbs... Found a couple bottles on the side of the road; turned one into a funnel, and the other I used to capture the gas out of the SV. Started the bike and ran it using the fuel left in the carbs, and the vacuum from the engine allowed the petcock to open and drain fuel out into my storage pop container... (Rinsed them both with gas, first.. of course..) And then I used the cut bottle / funnel to pour it into her gas tank. Transferred her a gallon, and we were good to go. It was a pretty epic MacGuyver moment for me.
