Abstract: Examples of oriented, nonbounding, line-element parallelizable manifolds are given in all odd dimensions $ n \ne 5$ or $ {2^r} - 1$. Furthermore, these examples are indecomposable in the unoriented bordism ring, and hence represent generators of $ \operatorname{Tor} \;{\Omega _\ast}$, the torsion subgroup of the oriented bordism ring. It is also proven that every class of $ \operatorname{Tor} \;{\Omega _\ast}$ admits a representative M such that $ \tau (M) \oplus 2$ splits as a sum of line bundles over M.
