There's a bit of an underground movement in the states and probably elsewhere called "rat bikes" - idea is pretty simple, make shitty junk run and then make it as ugly as possible. While pre-dating Mad Max, certainly much inspiration was gained from the trilogy.

http://ratbike.org/a_readers.php has a large number of examples, some are less "rusty" and more "Mad Max" modern (Katanas and what-not), either way lots of examples.

This one I scanned quickly out of an old magazine... and yes, those are car tires. :eek: Extra points for the "blood" on the headlight.
