Gallery of gorgeousness part 3

January 8, 2013

It’s holidays! After 12 lazy laps and a little frolic in my beloved Fitzroy pool I sit down to check my emails and do a spot of bill paying…some time later I emerge from a serious net-noodling session. Here’s some things I discovered on the way.

1975 Daws Kingpin folding bike from Vintage Green Bike

1975 Dawes Kingpin folding bike from Vintage Green Bike  a new brand for me. I just found  this article about them on the very excellent Raleigh Twenty site

Bianci from Vintage Green Bike vie Fuck Yeah Weird Bikes

This Dahon from Riding on Roadways, which also had this article about Alex Mouton (RIP), little bike pioneer.

This Cyclepro from Riding on Roadways, (which is where I stumbled onto Fuck Yeah Weird Bikes) and which also had this article about Alex Mouton (RIP), little bike pioneer.

then I remember this big wheeled beauty I’ve been saving up from some other noodling session (should have made a note of the link to give credit to the restorer)

Red delicious

and then I remember another bike I’d spotted on St Georges Road aeons ago that I’d been saving up for a big-wheel feature

and one more big wheeler from the archive just to make it a magic three

A Phillips. You can see more Phillips here.

    The Noise some call it “music ” spoiled ” it?

  2. Hiya! Thanks for the link.
    FWIW, I don’t think the Cyclepro folder is from Dahon. Some evidence points to an Italian origin, actually.
    Looks pretty similar to that lovely green Bianchi, si?
    Anyways, nice blog!

    • thanks Davey oil – I called it was a Dahon because I thought that’s what you called it in your post, but I see my error now. Did you buy it?

      PS. Thanks for the link yourself.

      PPS.Nice to come across someone who is as fond of small wheelers as I am.
