You may find https://m.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1421914688&x-yt-cl=84503534... interesting; it is a 1945 British film on the making of Raleigh bicycles. A lot of hand work was still involved; except for the specially-built automatic cutting machines that replaced jigs and hand tools, bicycle manufacture was still not far removed from how it had been at the beginning of the industry.

After a 4 hour road trip up and back to North New Jersey, I just acquired a 1966 Raleigh RSW (Really Small Wheel) folding bicycle. It is in pristeen condition and has been well taken care of all these years. It even has the plaid rack bag. I dropped it off at my local bike shop for a tune up on the way home. Looks like I have this year's Tweed Steed. Huzzah!

I am aquainted with Mr. and Mrs. Chrisman and you see them here on the inaugural ride of Mrs. Chrisman's new trike based on the Rudge Rotary model.  Mr. Chrisman is here seen with his Victory high wheel based on the 1885 Victor. Notice Mrs. Chrisman's parasol basket!

I'm halfway through rebuilding an early 60s Phillips 3-speed for this summer.
I'll be adding a front dyno hub I bought used.

Is anyone involves in a winter bicycling project?

Comment by Miss Cherries Jubilee on January 14, 2015 at 6:31pm

I am soooo excited! I just purchased a B18 Brooks saddle, which is a recreation of the 1908 ladies saddle for less than half of the retail price on ebay!  I have been shopping this saddle for two years and this particular color was limited - imagine my surprise to find one on ebay!

It's been crazy cold here lately - have to remind myself of these 19th centuray Alaska Goldrush wheelers to get out on my own wheels as the new year dawns!
