I have access to lots of Chinese parts. The local bike shops all have the same inventory which is limited, but we have online shopping like Amazon, over here it's called Shopee or Lazada. All the cottered stuff is still made and sometimes I find old stock parts for sale online. Big cities like Manila have tons of shops. The only thing I can't get is a good classic American frame. They have them but want top dollar, or only will sell the whole bike for twice their value. Right now I'm waiting on some foot pegs, they commonly ride passengers on bikes here, usually someone standing on the rear axle as they ride through town.Love how you build stuff I don't imagine it's easy finding resources on the Philippines yet always manage to build something cool
Like the Penny Farthing, they also used those on the early bikes. That's where I got the idea. They were all very large frames even though the average rider height wasn't that tall. Most needed a peg to get up and going.That single foot peg... is that an homage to the peg one uses to mount a penny farthing?
I thought I had the peg on the wrong side, but this pic shows them on the left side as I have it.
