    newbie member from Wokingham

    afternoon all

    signed up here to hopefully get a bit of info on british made stuff

    I have a few BMX bikes (couple from the 80s and a modern one for jumping about on) and will be starting a new project in a few months - this time it's a cruiser F&F (24") that is going to be built by Mr Brian Curtis to the exact design of the original 80s version
    Not done a British build before, but very excited to see just how much of it can be done without resorting to US or Japanese-made parts. I might get a couple of things fabricated too

    There are a lot of things that can be regarded as crossover parts from road bikes, (especially hubs) so will be keeping my eye out for things like Brooks saddles, Lambert hubs/brake calipers. Any pointers/handy links would be greatly appreciated - right now I'm just in the homework stage so have an open mind about what to put on it

    Only danger is that I end up seeing too many other bikes while I'm in here

    cheers
