'Kirsty' bike build
The accounts lady at my last job scored this well weathered vintage women's Releigh bike for free and had grand ideas of stripping it back and re-painting. I was horrified at this idea, why would you destroy that perfect patina?? Over the next year I casually yet consistently let her know my interest in the bike as it lay in pieces on her office floor, she knew as well as I did that this was a project she would never get around to.


Fairly long story short, the consistent harassment and a couple of boxes of beer is what got the job done. Now I was the proud owner of a vintage women's Raleigh bike but what to do to it? I decided after much deliberation that I simply couldn't cut the frame and modify the bike as I would normally have done, the bike was perfect as it stood so the only option was to customize by adding to the bike.
