Who doesn't love their bike? They bring back child hood memories, help us to stay in shape, get us outside and are a great, eco friendly method of transportation. But if they are wrecked or worn out what can you do with the old parts to make them useful? One great approach comes from RUNKA.com's friends at Resource Recovery:
Resource Revival Recycles Bicycle Parts into Art
We create fun, functional products from recycled bicycle parts. Every year, bike shops all over the United States send us tons of tons of greasy used bicycle parts. Then our team of artists tinkers with them until new products are born. We call this Rebicycling!
Passionate About Rebicycling Since 1991
The idea for Resource Revival came to Graham Bergh in 1991 when he got a flat tire biking to his recycling job in Portland, Oregon. Today Graham is still actively involved in new product development and customer service, as is Jim Hassert, artist and philosopher, who joined Resource Revival in 2002. All of our products are unique and original designs, and they are all made in Oregon, not mass produced.
Here are a few of the great ideas and products that Resource Revival has come up with:
