neat video. I was particularly impressed by the crank puller that was used!
I was also impressed by the knowledge of which threads were left hand threaded during the disassembly of the cranks and gearing assembly.
The novelty of that bike was the gearing in the cranks, and it might have been nice to see some explanation of how it worked.
Overall, the cinematography was very well done! It almost reminded me of a This Old Tony video, minus the humor.

Those scissors are so cool! My Dad did upholstery and had huge scissors like those. That 2spd BB is interesting

It is neat to see that the ideas that we sometimes think are new are not so new after all. Nice video work. This was so easy to watch.

Great restoration job and video! I liked how he used mostly vintage tools too.

When I first read the title of this post, I thought that it said, "Missing the Pickleball."
