View Full Version : Brake Drums (Mike Sherman will like this)
I remember a few weeks back, someone wanted ideas for a use for brake rotors. This isn't rotors, but I did find a use for drums. They make great bases for posts. This one is for a parking meter. I did three of these for my next door neighbor. Her father, brother and husband are all HD riders. She thought that these would make neat gifts. I have to agree!

Those meters are pretty cool. Rock, don't you think I have paid enough just buying that bike?????
Says to the left you and I are amoung the "senior members" of this site. I think free parking is one of our senior discounts. Maybe we can claim some more discounts?
I didn't fill it with concrete, but I see no reason that you couldn't. The meter isn't that top heavy that it causes a problem. I too am thinking of a grinder stand. I will probably go with a wheel for that, and fill it with concrete. I am thinking of adding a set of wheels that it could be tipped back and rolled around like a hand truck. With limited space in my shop, I am big into making things portable so I can stow it in a corner when not in use. As for the meters, I pick them up at an online auction site. They have alot of cool items. Check it out...
Try telling that to the meter maid in the black leather biker jacket...:D :D :D
