Introduction: Basketball Hoop From Bicycle Parts

Fairly easy way to recycle an old bicycle. See more inventions on http://www.uptimal.com

Step 1: Detach Parts From Bicycle

Simply detach all cables and loosen all bolts to separate the necessary parts. Adjust the handlebar for proper angle. Attach it to a large piece of wood with U-bolts and voila!

1. Rotate the handlebar so the hoop is horizontal after removing the fork from the frame
2. then position the rim

Step 2: Clamp It

Now all you need to do is clamp it in place with hose clamps. I did not have clamps when I made it so I used the actual spokes. (see main photo)

Its a good idaea. but the hoop looks a bit small. A real size basketball hoop is big enough to fit two Size 7 Basketballs through it at once.
