It took about 25-30 minutes for the pieces to melt completely and then it was time to pour. Sorry, no pictures of this step. My hands were full and I couldn't convince anyone else to stand anywhere close enough to my contraption to get pictures or video.
Here are the fresh baked aluminum muffins! This is approximately half of the bike peices. I'll melt the rest at a later date.
While I was doing this I was also "collecting" more aluminum. I know everyone says your not supposed to use beer or soda cans because of the paint and interior lining. It's probably the same people that say you shouldn't imbibe and operate 1500 degree furnaces.
