Figured out a good way to rust raw metal pretty quick. My secret recipe: Salt water with a little fertilizer mixed in, put it in a spray bottle, spray the part every once in a while. 2nd day so far & looks pretty good, another day or two should do it. I have a before pic & will post a before & after when I am happy with the finish!

I may throw one of these at it & see if it sticks! Not sure yet. Sorry, couldn't figure out how to rotate image to the left.
Low Tech, No Tech "pick"!

how big are they?
if there the size they are on my screen could u use them for big handle bar caps? maybe if u used horn style bars so they hook forward and the skulls are facing forward

Some kind of alien skulls I picked up on a trip to Mars!:D I'm thinking maybe a 3D headbadge.

Dr. Pick, Sorry to have to use your REAL name! You and I both know that those are skulls from the Polynesian six thumbed banana squirrels you discovered on your "vacation" to the islands. That is an endangered species friend, and you know it! if you don't use em both, sell me one.:)

Thanks for the pos comments. I do have an original lense or what's left of one but not sure if I will use it or not yet.
