Skull & Cross Bone Disc Wheel

Today I finished my homemade disc wheel.

I first cut a paper pattern to custom fit on the wheel, and then two discs of corrugated plastic.

I joined their seams with duck tape, and drilled holes between each spoke.

I joined the two discs through the spokes with cable ties and used duck tape to finish covering the wheel and valve hole.

I covered the duck tape with foil tape for finish, and tried the wheel on.

Then I spray painted my skull and cross bone stencil on.

Tomorrow, I'll ride it through Syracuse...
