I've mangled my share of bikes in my younger days.
Believing that I could build a super cool bike with only a crescent wrench, vice grips and a big bag of pot.
I'm embarrassed just thinking about the bikes I've taken apart and wasn't able to put back together.
However, I would like to think that I'm pretty good at building a bike now - thanks in no small part to all of those abominations in the past.
I think, at some point norton, we've all done that, but I would hope not many of us had the balls to try to sell our junk as high end "collector" customs. Although, I don't know, if people are dumb enough to buy 'em at that price, I could whip one of 'em up in a weekend... hmmmmmmm......
