Another one joins the fun..next best thing to a BikeFriday that I can have it's my BikeMonday...lol not a folder as yet but will be when I get the cutting gear out after dry building and playing around to see what is going to fit where.. this was born out of a donation to re~cycle as I have been running a local collection point for any old bikes that I can get my hands on saving them from going to the skips and landfill sites in my area.. having walked the legs off myself doing this the need for something to pick the bikes up.. I drive but don't own or wont to own a car.. as I have no need for one... So to making up from parts on hand a little bike we can use to tow a trailer behind..do the shopping ect.. take on Holiday on the train 20/20 vision was born after drinking 3lts of cider... later, I started work on it..lol
Above as it was.. late on Friday below as it is now Late on Saturday..
As you can see lots to do yet only single speed for now and on the look out for some nice forks to fit..have a load of bmx ones but all to short so will have to cut-mod-weld hit with big hammer to make fit..
sorting out the crank will be the next job on the list..
Right back to the cider then oh the joys of pressing apples yourself..hic hic...
Re-Cycle by the way This is a small UK-based charity that aims to provide affordable bikes to local people in Africa. This helps improve access to employment, education, healthcare and social opportunities in rural communities. From our Colchester UK base, we prepare and ship donated cycles to partner projects in Africa
. In Africa, they become essential transport, employment... and provide much enjoyment too.
