Default Re: Idea Dilemma

For me it quite often depends on the materials available. If I have to get materials, then the approach may change based on that. If I'm putting money in, I usually want a better looking end result. If I need to buy tools or something else to do it, likewise I want the investment to show that I spent money on it. If I'm working with freecycled or repurposed material, I want it to look good but I also want the 'alternative thinking' to show through. For example, if I was thinking of recovering a seat, I'd probably go up the road to one of the local thrift stores and look for an old leather jacket for the material.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
