Valve Cap Thread

I’m betting there are some pretty cool valve caps out there. Post them here. Cool, basic, rare, expensive, goofy, all are welcome! I’ll start.

Re: Valve Cap Thread

Have seen a lot of creative caps over the years! Though some are a little too bulky for my liking.

Only ones I've made / used recently are bullet casings. I have a bunch of dice I've saved, but haven't gotten around to drilling any holes, not even sure where they're at. I had black dice caps on my GT mags back in the 90's, but they somehow vanished over the years.

I have a set of the bullet casings on my Dyno currently and my Ford Ranger truck. Better than plain caps and I have a bunch of scrap casings to use, they polish up nice too.

(the small caps next top the casings are what I filed down glued in for the threads, works better than the plastic caps)

I had red clear dice as a kid. Corner drilled. I wish I still had them. Got lost through the years.

I like using casino and d&d dice but I don’t like gluing in caps. I prefer to thread them. The multisided dice don’t turn out well I don’t make those anymore. But i like making cable ends to match the dice.

Re: Valve Cap Thread

As a kid I had pink translucent corner mounted dice caps on my ‘88 PFT. Always likes that look.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/256245/2f0e18a8-3dc7-45a2-9459-5848c480aa83604e2f7af1.jpeg

Tried to get them again but I could only find ones mounted on the flats.

Eventually I found these in hot pink but they are not translucent.

I also have these on my other builds.

Re: Valve Cap Thread

Yeah they popped up last summer. Not sure if they still do them now.

I've got red grenades on my SE, but I found the two spare so they will go on the FIT, with some of the coolness Kalel sent me recently. Which are also red, so it's like he can read my mind and shit lol
