After suggesting to my old man that I might want to do this to his old Speedwell, he got the better (in his opinion!) idea to restore the old girl (the bike, not mum) to it's original glory. So for the last couple of months he's been stripping (well, he had to get the money for the project somehow), sanding, procuring some parts from the mad Frenchman Maurice, and getting said parts re-chromed. And the results are impressive... check it out.
His panelbeating mate Cookie is going to re-spray the frame and rims, and I'll bring you the end result when Cookie gets his finger out and Levi builds the wheels. Then I'll turn it into a fixie!
