Nuovo

I've not said anything on the build of this machine, choosing instead to focus on the journey of the more convoluted process of the...

Postino

As a homage to the film Il Postino because it was inspired by the Italian hub, the Workhaus Postino.

The Bespoked Backdrop

This maybe of little interest to people looking at bikes. I'm putting the pictures up because I like them. I share workshop space with...

The Bag Itself

Leatherwork is something I have little experience in. Fortunately, as well at a joinery workshop on site, there are also skilled bag...

Paint Shop

This is my favourite moment in the process, my first view after the paint goes on. It was done Peter Adams at Panel2Paint in Sussex. They...

Somewhere for the Letters

Under-photographed construction of the rack I'm afraid. Sorry about that. It was fiddly as hell and done all a bit in mid-air. If I build...

Bending Bigger Tubes

My plan was to build a bike inspired by the old red Pashleys ridden by the postmen of my childhood. However, these bikes were quite...

Stay Benders

It is time to make myself a new and better stay bender. I'm fortunate to share site space with a high end joinery company, Workhaus...

Mounting Plates

The hubs are fully sealed and self contained units, holding battery, motor and sensors. At the time of purchase they came set up for a...

The Inescapable Deadline

So, I have had these two Zehus hubs sitting on my shelf for an age, just waiting for the time to build bikes around them. The designs...

The Final Look

He's not light and I can see the flaws, but here he is in all his fully-laden glory. The option has come up to show during the Brighton...

And Then It Was Done.

Got to the Arnolfini in Bristol at the eleventh hour where the bike pretty much set up itself. Even though I am British and conditioned...

Paint

Called into the sprayers to put the decals on prior to the lacquer coat and it looks beautiful. I love the green and the paint job itself...

Canvas Box

Easter or not, there's still too much to do to stop, so I cracked on with the canvas box. I'm using 6mm marine ply and some off cuts of...

Furniture Design

Taken a bit of time to tinker with some designs for the boxes for materials and canvases. Is there really such a thing as Easter...

Blast

I dropped the beast off at the sand blasters today. I loved Easter as a kid, now it's getting in the way. It is going to be tight.

What is it?

The frame is nearly finished, but looks less and less like a bike. I suppose components will help. As far as I am aware, all that remains...

Sidewinders

I decided to step away from bikes for the day, do something totally removed and play golf with my mates. I cricked my neck within the...

Mounting Plates

There are three mounting points on the left hand side for a large marine plywood box for carrying the canvases and a palette. These seem...

Carriers

This is my fifth go at forming a good curve in 10 mm bar for the front and rear carriers. Perhaps I should put in photographs of the...
