They’ve got to be heavy, and I can’t imagine how they might ride, but there’s no denying the post-apocalyptic awesomeness of sporting a bike you welded up yourself from a pile of rebar.

And this one is by Tempe, AZ, resident Matt Krise.
Finally, this cobbled-together frame is attributed to “the hermit who lives at the end of the Albany Bulb.”
Did I miss a good one? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks to Flickr user gdafm who sent me a link to his photo of this rebar handbrake lever (also rebar pedals and a rebar bike seat attached to a pedal-powered grain mill) made by Jesse Austin Brenneman. There’s video showing its action here.
