We use to hacksaw hollow forks from an old bike and bolt them on the front forks of our Schwinn to give it a chopper look.

Dangerous, but we looked cool.

I've always wondered how many valuable cards were destroyed by the cards in the spokes trick. I remember an older kid putting a 1960 Mantle in his spokes, to show his distain for the Yankees

August, we never tried that, but it does sound cool.

Samslam, I never destroyed a Mantle card. I did destroy some others.

Did I see this post before? I seem to recall mentioning they forgot fox tails and baskets.

I wouldn't be surprised.

I did the old cards in the spokes trick. And yes, I used Mantle cards(Dodger fan), though mine came from sixties sets. Still worth a fair piece of change though.
