A trusty steed desecrated...commuting gone awry.

A fine bike really. Until the owner started suffering from fumes.
Hockey tape over foam grips,
enough lights to grow plants,
and an Electra frame bag.

Add a homemade insulated water bottle, 
custom battery mount sharp enough to kill,

Here is where it gets really ugly. 
The drivetrain is so dirty the freewheel is fuzzy.
There is enough " I hate my bike " road grime on this bike I was scared to wrench on it.
I felt if I removed the grime it would fall apart, nothing hold a bike together like decades of built up desert dust and misuse of lube.

A closer view of the tube sock insulator. 

Need a Spritz?
