    Silver Angel

    This bike was originally going to be cut up to modify the frame of my 'Winter Build Off' bike, Retroped. However, when it arrived and I looked at it, I straight away thought of my great-great-niece who turned 6 years old at the end of November 2018 and decided that I’d build it for her. Here’s...

    QUADRUPED - WBO 2018 Scratch Built

    I literally have nothing to start with except an idea and these two concept designs... Four side mounted wheels and some square box section steel for the frame. I suppose I’ll need to start getting some parts and materials. :39: Glen.
