    "cobble up" or "cobble together" are both idioms that refer to putting something together hastily and without care. A cobbler is a shoemaker. However, it is clear to see how someone could use the term "cobbler" to refer to one who cobbles up a kludgy contraption.

    The more I looked at that abortion that some poor schlemiel paid money for, the more I kept thinkin about the kid from deliverance playing the banjo... and wondering if he didn't help with the design. Those words were something I came up with after a three-day bender... been sober for over nine years now, and with good reaon- I'm bad news when I'm drunk. Regardless, thought you might enjoy a bit of insanity to commemorate the insanity of the build.

    Hey Jim, I showed my wife (who admits she has limited mechanical experience) the pictures you provided of the atrocity.
    She displayed her significant IQ by asking "Is that a joke?".
    When I explained that somebody charged a fellow money to build him this bike, she needed to be assured that the builder wasn't anybody on the forum that I knew of.
    She wanted to know if it made it there under its own power.
    She's no mechanic and even she knows that was no place to put an exhaust.
    She didn't think the drivetrain looked safe. (I wasn't coaching her on anything, just showing her pictures.)
    She thought there was too much rubber crammed into the rear mount ("Shouldn't that be bolted down a little closer?"). And she wanted to know why the front wasn't bolted down at all ("Those metal straps are supposed to keep this engine from moving all around down there?").
    Jim, even my wife could tell that was a horrid job that other makeshift (or is it "shifty", or maybe "shiftless") bike builder did. She didn't have to actually say that she wouldn't ride a thing like that, the glare in her eyes told the story.
    And I was amused the whole time. Thanks Jim. We're glad people like you are around to keep monstrosities like that from giving us bad names.

    I showed it to my wife as well- her language got a mite salty there. Understand, she spends a bit of time over my shoulder asking questions and has gotten some time ago to the point where her suggestions are very worth listening to... she still prefers I sling the wrench. Finally summed it up- "Looks like something (her ex) would do," Had to laugh... her ex is all about quick and dirty, which is why he can't hold a job.
