Donhou. Swan white.

June 10, 2011

Odin gave me a great mood board for his project and we worked closely on the paint firing plenty of drawings back and forth ’till we got it just right. Swan white with jet black interior panels. Big hi-5 as we’re both really stoked on it.

Built using oversized Reynolds 631 into a semi compact design and using a carbon fork to keep the weight down, this will be a fun little everyday bike.

Looking forward to meeting the man behind these frames tomorrow at the Bristol’s Bespoked… The countdown has begun!


Lee Cooper and a bling Porteur.

Badda Bing!

Well, would you look at this… this is one super blinged out bespoke chrome porteur bike handbuilt by none other than Lee Cooper of Coventry.

He’s now making specialist porteur racks for bikes such as this, too so if you are in the market, make sure you get in-touch with him.

Nice work, Lee. I remember you talking about this but I never imagined it would be this good. Double thumbs up!

Donhou Hotness.

Donnie has only just started building frames but already his work is looking amazing. If you are based anywhere near Norfolk and you are in the market for something, be sure to check this guy out.

Oh and Sparky, and you Tim, I want to see what he did for you when they are finished!

Oh snap! I remember you. I chewed this guy’s ears off for over half an hour once… sorry!

He told me he had worked in that very store on Westerstraat for like 60 years so I had to come with at least a good handful of FAQs. Really nice guy though and very helpful, if you are ever in the ‘Dam’ you must go check out RIH.

Anyway peep the vids and props to Sam at FGL for putting them up.

Right now…

I would put a whole bunch of pictures up from this post but the owner of said pictures has prohibited such actions.

No drama… just go here to peep the full set.
