One shower head, piece of ceiling light grill and 2 tool box latches makes a good headlight.

I took a cymbal, a dismantled hookah, stainless knockouts from chimney cap manufacturing and some chandelier parts with the guts from a flashlight and made a rear fender, tail light, and a "rocket booster" combo. I am fabricating this for a current build im working on.

I took a piece of a lamp, the top of a gumball machine, the top of a fence post, an antique brass phone cradleand some scrap copper to make this "Flying Eyeball" Hood ornament.
 
Is it me or does this look like a seahorse?

I thought it was a seahorse too. Where is this on your bike?
 
Hey
I thought it was a seahorse too. Where is this on your bike?
Hey Kingfish, you may have missed the text/explanation. It's a rear fender, tail lights, 'rocket engine " combination for a current rebuild. If you like doodads, you're gonna love this bike !!! By the way, thanks again for your help with my questions. I learned a lot this time, and will be better prepared next time. Can we start the next build off tomorrow ??
 
You know, all it needs is a longer tail. And I love seahorses !! You saw something different, you have the soul an artist. Good luck !!!
ha ha ha Flattery will get you a a new gadget for all that compliment...Nah Actually for all the doodads etc... I believe you came out as the king of ratifiying this year....

It's 4:45AM on Long Island, just woke up and saw my phone blinking. I'm very pleased that you selected me, I had a great time doing this and I want to play again. Thanks so much, you have an amazing set of skills. Have a great day and keep building 'em
 
Great choice Funk. The fan housing was a real stand out in this years build-off for me!
Thank you, I really appreciate that. We'll be putting some of my other builds on my album soon that you might enjoy. Again, thank you
Congrats!
BTW, you don't have to wait for a build-off to start a build journal. The BUILDS section is open year 'round. I'm sure everyone would like to see what you've got cooking!

Thanks TRM,I'm still working on learning how to post, etc as I am way behind on computer /smart phone stuff. The build off was the carrot on the stick I needed to start trying. I'll be putting stuff on my album very soon
 
Definitely the best choice for the award this year!
Congrats @Donniebikes55
What I like most about that crank shroud is when you see it being used that way, it is such a natural fit, that it just seems like a blatantly obvious re-use. BUT, in all the years of RRB, no one has ever done it before. I know that I have thrown away at least three ceiling fans since I have been on RRB, and I never even knew I had a crank housing in my hand :D . BRILLIANT eye and excellent execution Donnie!

Thanks Kingfish,I used it before on my trike, and I keep different sizes and shapes of them just in case. I'm running out of room for bikes and the Build Off was a good excuse to build another one. This whole thing was a really good time !!!

Will do as soon as I figure out how. And thank you again, you can't imagine how happy I am. I hope you're enjoying riding that slick bike you built, just looking at mine makes me smile every time

Hello Funkme, I got home from work today and on my steps was a package for me !! When I finished dancing around the front yard, I ran inside to check what voltage to use, hooked up batteries, and did another dance. My dilemma now is that I have 9 bikes to choose from, or maybe save it for the next build off. BTW, remember the piece you said looked like a seahorse ?? I just finished that bike, I'll be putting it in my album soon. Thanks so much again, take care and ride safe
