Makeshift Exhaust Pipe Support

My exhaust pipe ring snapped right outside the Lincoln Tunnel. It was dragging on the ground! I was meeting Anne to get her apartment key because I locked myself out and had to prepare for a gig in a few hours. I tied up the exhaust pipe with an extension cord. Those things are so handy 😀 It held for a week until it was convenient to get the replacement ring. $7. And, the cord still works, I believe.

Submitted by Eric Clausen, aka Drawing America By Bike. I am pretty sure this is not his bike though. I think he uses saddle bags. If you spend 2 minutes on his site, you will see that Eric is the master of makeshift solutions.

I saw this street sign on the corner of East Seventh and Woodland Ave. in Plainfield, NJ. Its post was somehow broken, so someone roped it to a tree.
