What with the weather and other things, it seems that my bike is being stretched between two locations.
I was worried that I would not have a suitable crank set, but I found that I had one non-Romet set left with a small sprocket. I am not keen on the plastic covers that it has fitted, but I am more worried at the moment what I might find underneath them. The arms probably have a dimpled as-cast look, but I would rather like to know what they do look like...
Other than that I have the seat post I might use, and the 'rod' that I might be able to use to make the rear support for the seat.
'Might' is a good word.
Anyway, I have booked two weeks off for Christmas. Well, I have booked the period up until New Year's eve, but the lazy 'people' in the office at work haven't organised the booking system for next year yet.
Here's the view from our yard before we had the big snow, and that is one of our friends in the village with possibly the last horse and cart in the district. while he has officially retired from farming, he still has enough to continue, along with his wife, doing the things he obviously loves to do. Which includes keeping the last horses in the village. We also have a wagon like that in one of our barns, and if he ever needs a replacement tire then we have a few of those as well in another barn.
Anyway, at the moment we are in the city, and I have loaded up everything for the project other than the actual frame, to take to our village home on thursday evening.
Well, we might have to stay on friday, if one of the dopey lecturers who don't wear masks get sick.
