Lion brass bell. From England

Lion brass bell. From England, originally uploaded by BikeTinker.

I got this for free, for being a moderately… something… bike blogger. In the course of moving, getting a new job in California, fooling around, letting drift, I kept moving it around, thinking, “I’ll put it on a bike any day now.” Well, after realizing I had a bell need, since there are 100x as many people in California as Oregon, and I’d sure like them to get out of my way, I tossed it in the car, to mount at work.
Two weeks later, I found it in my driveway, thoroughly run over. The stainless hardware easily bent back into shape, and the patina… you can’t buy that kind of authenticity. Really, it’s a sweet little bell.
