Sec­ond time around

Old Bike Australasia - - MOTO GUZZI V7 III -

A flat tyre dur­ing a road trip around Aus­tralian in 2012 gave Micha Jostl, the owner of Upcycled Aus­tralia, an idea – how to make use of all those old mo­tor­cy­cle tyres and in­ner tubes. The re­sult is a unique range of hand­made ac­ces­sories – from bags to bracelets – that do the earth a favour by sav­ing us­able ma­te­ri­als from be­com­ing land­fill. The Tread belt is a heavy duty item made from the cen­tre sec­tion of a mo­tor­cy­cle ra­dial tyre which is im­mensely strong and quite funky look­ing. The buckle comes in ei­ther brass or sil­ver colour, with lengths of 110, 120 or 130cm. RRP $45.00 plus postage. The Fer­tile wallet was for­merly an in­ner tube, so it is water-re­sis­tant, has a zip­pered change pocket and a note sec­tion, plus six card slots. RRP $39.00 plus postage.
