Show off your conversions. Some WDs have more mods on their bodies than their bikes!

Pins, Plates, Add-ons, Add-ins, Replacements, Extensions, Reductions

Keep it tidy - no enlargements!

Here's mine....

Broken left arm (Complicated fracture of the greater tuberositas of the left humerus). Rotator cuff muscle detached from the arm on a bone fragment.

The ugly part was that I still had to ride another 70kms across some rough terrain with one functional arm. Thank God for Myprodol!



Repair: Titanium plate and three screws. Doctor used some gut to anchor down the floating fragment to the screws.



Took about 6 weeks for the bone to heal but around 6 months for the muscles to funciton properly.
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy
