Resource Revival

Maker - Graham Bergh

Resource Revival

Maker Story

Recycled Bikes as Functional Art

What do you do with old bicycle parts? If you’re Graham Bergh, you bring them to a metal shop and turn them into works of art.

Bike shops all over the U.S. send used parts to Graham for recycling — or as he calls it, “rebicycling.” Artisans at Graham’s company, called Resource Revival, turn the scraps into ingenious creations that can be appreciated by cyclists and non-cyclists alike. Picture frames (in 4 × 6 and 5 × 7 sizes) are artfully wrapped in bicycle chains. Business card holders, made from a cut bicycle wheel rim and wrapped in bicycle chain, store up to 30 cards plus a pen or pencil. The company also makes bowls by coiling old bike chains into shapes that are perfect for catching keys, wallets and loose change.

Graham had the idea for Resource Revival back in 1991, when he got a flat tire while riding to his recycling job in Portland, Oregon. This mishap inspired his decision to combine two of his interests — bicycling and recycling — in an artistic, resourceful way.
