So I'm sitting here in bed where I've been for over a week now. I've been propped up and surrounded by pillows like a newborn at a distant relative's house during New Years Eve festivities. On the end table beside me is a stack of syringes, several orange and brightly stickered bottles, and half a 3-liter bottle of apple juice. I'm in this situation after hitting the undo button on a lesson learned back in 2009. A lesson involving high speed, medium grade octane, and a low sense of danger. As I said, I've since gone through the necessary steps to reverse what has been ram-set into my 20 year old dude-bone and left the hospital on a frigid February afternoon clutching a bottle of pills, half a chicken salad sandwich, and a large bag of hardware that looks to have come straight out of a Mcmaster Carr catalog. Everything that is blue/green is titanium. Everything that is silver/chrome is stainless. I'm posting this in The Garage because I'm looking for some input from you avid tinkerers and garage handymen out there. I'd like to do something with these pieces. They're way too cool to throw away, and hanging them on my wall serves no purpose as I don't often have a wall to hang it on. I'd love to turn these into something for the bike, or somehow incorporate it. I've considered everything from crash bars to suicide shifters, but nothing quite speaks to me. I could always just zip tie it to the frame or luggage somewhere and just consider it another piece of flair, but it would be really cool if I could make it functional. My steed the last time I spoke with her: Considering its finish and the material, I'd really rather avoid cutting, drilling, grinding, or threading the rod. There are several threaded holes at either end and all of the tools used were either flat head screwdrivers or hex/allen. Let those creative juices flow, what've ya got?
