Teh John's Bikes Gallery Thread
« on: April 03, 2014, 10:30:51 pm »
With the approval and encouragement of 'Teh Mannidgement' this thread is to showcase some of the work done in the shop for forum members and non-members alike.

This is emphatically NOT a 'Bikes For Sale' thread, most of the pictures are several months old. Anything I want to offer for sale will be in the Classifieds. It's a little self indulgent but hey, sue me!



We'll kick off with 'Frankenhilda'

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Next is the mysterious 'pink' frame. Expect a gallery entry by Tiermat when he gets it finished.



The next job is to apply the decals which are waterslide. Oh! FFS! Why did I say yes!?

Should've thought of this one earlier. I s'pose that it's been such a long stayer that I failed to notice.

I can confirm the bike was a lot more finished than that when I collected it.

One more very satisfied John's Bikes customer. :)

The framing was entirely determined by where I was mid-tripping over heaps of metalwork.

Well, if you have anything in a steel single speed (not fixed) in a medium size that could find its way to Lahndan I could help you declutter... ;)

Somewhere around a 52-54 as I am 5'9" with 30" leg. Looking for something to do family pootling with flat pedals and the possibility of a rack to carry shopping etc.
