In Late October I spent a week at Lake Eyre in South Australia. It is the largest lake in Australia and the lowest point in Australia at 15 meters below sea level, when it is dry. Its a salt lake and the location of the record breaking land speed record by Donald Campbell in the early 1960’s. Its one desolate place and while I am glad to have had the experience of seeing it I was kinda glad to be back and looking at the tools again.
I finally tied up the details of a touring frame for Jeremy in WA. We have been discussing this for at least 12 months and have at long last got things sorted.
You will see more of this in the coming months.
Bundit dropped another project off before I left for Lake Eyre so I got that finished. You might think the dropouts look a little strange sloping down from the chain stay. This is partly because it is a frame modification rather than being built with these dropouts but it does mean they run parallel to the ground and that the gearing remains constant along the length of the D/O slot
