17 Life Cheats You Need For The Post-Apocalypse

Turn an old bike into your new bow.

Here’s all you need:

  • A saw to cut the bike rim.
  • Scissors.
  • Snips or some way to remove the spokes from the wheel.
  • File to tidy cuts – pliers to bend.

Materials for the basic build:

  • Bike wheel.
  • Eyelets of some description.
  • Inner tube from wheel.
  • Catapult rubber (or you can use cut down inner tube but it is not as powerful).
  • Retainers for the threaded end of the eyelets (plasterboard expanding grommets in this case).
  • A spoke for the sight.

Take your scrap wheel and strip it down to it’s constituent parts. Clean up the body/frame. Strip down the spindle and remove the bearings. Take a saw and cut the rim/wheel in half between two holes. Clean up the corners and round off any sharp edges. You can get a better idea for how to do it but following this how-to guide.
