ReadyMade Bicycle Rack & Messenger Bag

I found this book at the library and thumbed through it. Then I was so intrigued by it's clever use of everday materials that I had to check it out. It contains do-it-yourself projects made of recycled objects. Pictured below are two related to cycling but there were many more cool ideas including an aluminum can room divider and a water bottle lounge chair. Everything in it is very urban, hip and modern. Gonna have to find a copy for purchase because this book could keep me busy for months.

Bike Rack - Made from a used pallet and requires only a couple of brackets purchased from a DIY store.

No- Sew Messenger Bag - Made from plastic bags. The only thing I would need to purchase is the webbing and buckle for the strap.
