When looking for inspiration; standing back and sipping a beer or a cup of tea always helps the decision making
if all else fails....come on here.
I came on here and found a plethora of bikes and behind them, the thoughts and reasons why people have decided to make them the way they have. This gave me a systematic plan ( read: viable excuses for creating more projects)
I need a winter hack/town bike - One bike
" a bike to scare myself on in the woods - another bike.
" a bike from the '80's built to catalogue spec - another bike.
" a bike to demonstrate the craftsmanship of the '90's - OK, that's the fourth justified
" a bike because..oo..err..
..I will see how I feel when I stand back and look at my fleet and reflect on which bike I enjoyed building the most and why
. No doubt in my mind that some f&f or other that I have a penchant for will appear by then. An early Zaskar or a Roberts would be nice.
