  1. Project 1 - Light / Bottle Mount

    Hi Folks,
    Not much progress here because I am waiting for the UK weather to warm up so that I can strip down the frame and paint it. So frustrating ….. But I have had a chance to get a few miles on the clock just to be sure I do not need to change anything.

    So I've made a bracket for the front light / water bottle from some scrap handle bar off a donor bike.

  4. Project 1 : Fox Seat

    Hi Folks,

    I have been doing a bit more work on the seat.

    I decided to keep the chipboard seat I had made as a test. I know the plans call for plywood and I suspect that I could save a few ounces if I used that. But I figure the extra weight will just get me fitter, quicker . I may change the main seat body for ply at a later date.



    Cut out the two halves.

    Hi Folks,
