Bicycle Part? Peppermill!

I haven't a bicycle - at least not anymore. Instead I have a peppermill. It was given to me from my friend Christine as birthday present. She saw me, when I admired it, when we visited Zürich. It's from a shop with lot of recycled and upcycled items from different kind of social projects. This item was produced by people, who have longterm difficulties in finding a new job. I think, who ever made it, did an awesome job.

It's the middle part of a bicycle wheel - whatever the name in English may be. In German it's called "Nabe" and I found terms like hub, boss, center and driving collar. Nevertheless it is now a peppermill. It's quite handy and very useful. It survived a deep fall on the tiles without a scratch (bicycle part ...). The wheel on top is a little bit bend since, but it doesn't matter at all. Now the peppermill looks like a cheeky French chef with a beret!

This peppermill is love at first sight. If I am very nice, would you sell it???blushAnd I must say, your pictures of it does it justice.

No, it was love on first sight, but I decided to buy the earings (recycled computer harddrive, designed by a women project) and than I got it as birthday present!
But maybe they still have something like that https://www.markt-luecke.ch - at least they have something else "made of bicycle" have a look at image 31 - maybe your wife or daughter would like that!
