Shit you find on the roads

I see so much shit that falls off trucks laying on the road.a cordless remote control for a truck crane, that couldn't be cheap, today out peddin' around, a four foot piece of 1" x 1/2" bar stock... picked that up also.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

Hell yeah, I love "found" stuffs, just sold a set of 4 tires on rims that were tossed out at my complex from a midnight move lease breaker! Easiest money I ever made, put tires in truck, place cl ad, collect $ within a day. :) I have found money on the side of the road, folding money, I pick up every penny I find in a parking lot, "one mans trash" etc...I have found tools, all sorts of things along the road. My best score? $222, in 2 dollar bills in the parking lot of a bar, shuffling my feet through the snow and kicked it up, rolled up in a rubber band, had to dry them out, but the bank sure took them! k

Keep your eyes open, off your phone, you may just find some free treasure!

Lots of bungee cords. I always pick them up as long as they're still good.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

All kinds of things including my own air filter and clamp that fell off the year before but the most recent was a like new aluminum step ladder

Re: Shit you find on the roads

One time I saw what appeared to be a 55gallok blue barrel laying in the ditch. Hoping there was drugs, cash, or honey in that fuqqer, I whipped it over to scoops it up. Well....... it was a pressure tank for a well system. Brand new. One scuff the size of a half dollar from road rash, but no dents! Loaded it up. Took it home and pressure tested it. Yep it’s holding it’s pressure. Score!!!Edited 1 time(s). Last edit at 11/05/18 10:29AM by jayson_sumpter.

I love this one the stupid ass is texting and gets phone ripped out of hand and smashed in the street.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

Yesterday I found this barrel of handi wipes in the middle of the lane of one of my regular routes. It was my intention to just kick it to the side so no one would hit it.

Since it was full I looped it over my bars and now it sits near the sink.

This needs to happen a lot more often. :)

Re: Shit you find on the roads

This is my old scooter. I had it forever, GY6 50 (QMB139)

Got it free from a friend, it had broken so I sold him a cheap tomos and he gave me the scooter.

It got more and more shit torn off and everything on it was shit I found on the road while riding. Even the paint was paint cans I found while riding. (Tunnel we used to ride thru was popular for graffiti so it wasn't uncommon to find some near empties)

Seat was a trash seat, there were 1 or 2 bits that were pulled from the swoops communal scrap pile but yea - mostly just shit from the street. even that trailer was a curb find.

As a most-fitting end, my LAST swoops ride before I left ATL, the rear shock blew off. I got off, pushed it to the sidewalk, jumped on skip's bike and left the old beast still running on the side of the road.

Funniest part I had jus filled a gas can I left with it, and that was the only part I regretted leaving. When we got to the bar we were riding to, Jordan pulled up late, carrying the gas can. The $3 of gas, definitely worth more than the whole rest of that shitpile. though sometimes I do miss it.

Yeah it's always that piece of shit you get for nothing that runs forever.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

Did you ever get the flywheel back on that Tomos?

A pair of jeans with twenty dollars in the pocket. A crutch ( perhaps a miracle) a full case of beer.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

i found this crazy big spring one time in atlanta. it looked like a tomos clutch spring but 500 times bigger. i brought it to the shop...

Re: Shit you find on the roads

Speaking of shit, I Found my ex-wife on the side of the road. I put her back where I found her.

Re: Shit you find on the roads

I had been riding a bicycle in a hilly, rural area between two sections of bike path north of Hiram College. While looking toward the ditch I saw a bright purple, cardboard box that caught my eye. I turned around and went back to pick it up; some cheap, VHS porno tape. Naturally, I had to put it in a tape player to critique the cinematography... two thumbs down. Talk about two strokes...

Re: Shit you find on the roads

My best find was a Honda Hobbit on the side of the road on top of a junk pile. I was riding with my mother in her new Jeep suv, and demanded to stop and I grabbed it.

I found a yeti gallon water cooler, hand tools, and 50,000 tie-down straps and bungee cords.

My best find was a Honda Hobbit on the side of the road on top of a junk pile.

I saw a Honda XR100R sitting in someones field of junk, on top of a junk cargo van. I tried my best to figure out who owned it but never could determine where it came from. That was several years ago, i would be willing to bet its still there.

I also know where someone took an old italian moped and mounted it on a pole in their front yard. It might double as their mail box. Still has the engine on it and all. Its solid rust now.

Theres a video somewhere of you hanging it on a post and bungee bouncing on it. I kept worrying itd snap and tear your nutsack off but it was too fun to stop

Re: Shit you find on the roads

Several years ago I found an 18 inch trailer tire mounted on a rim in the middle of the road. It was brand new and still had the sticker on the side. I ran an ad on a local Facebook page and nobody claimed it. I finally traded it for some car parts that I wanted at a local junk yard. The guy got the better end of the deal, but what was I ever gonna do with it?
