Mad March

06 Apr

March went by with a whirl as I prepared for the Hand Made Bicycle show in Melbourne at the end of April. #hbsa2018

Jeremy’s classic tourer is finally a complete frame. Forks are still to come but I am waiting on him to get hold of the correct dropouts from Germany. If you visit the show this frame will be on show in all its rawness. Jeremy has opted to arrange painting himself so I will sandblast it and show it as is. Have a look at the pictures here and head over to my Instagram page #g.duke_bikeframes to see more.

If you don’t follow Instagram, don’t worry, I have no intention to move there entirely so this blog will continue with more descriptions than Instagram encourage.

Also completed a ATP ( Australian Tubing Products ) inspired headstem complete with raygun style tip. Chrome by Star Plating in Bayswater. Tips available in a variety of colours. Just like in the old days. See it at the show as well
