Hello folks!

I couldnt really find where this should go - but i'm fairly pleased with the result of my most recent build, and here seemed the most suitable part of the forum :)

Anyway, it started with this:


My old work bike - this style ones are all getting scrapped after someone broke the forks on one... I was a bit attached to mine, so I decided to give it a future lease of life at Chateau D

I have massively failed with a series of progress pics, so I'm afraid you'll just have to have the end result!


I'm pretty pleased with how it has turned out, 3 speed and drum brakes makes quite a nice ride too :)

Hope you like, and please feel free to move it if I have failed in my post location!

Mike :)

I see, more Autoshiters :D

I'm loving the idea of a fat tyre build next. The roads around here are appalling enough that I've been thinking a minimum of 27 x 1-1/4" but maybe stepping up to MTB sizes to soak up some of the bumps.

moved to readers bikes.

Looks great! Very Governor'ish. Liking the idea of big fat tyre build myself, it's already on the very long list of future projects.
