This is my next project bike (Potter included for scale), originally uploaded by spinneyhead.
If it looks familiar that’s because it’s practically the same frame as the window dressing bike I photographed a few days ago. It’s an old Raleigh with rod brakes which I’m going to do in a rat roddy style. Nothing too drastic, but I’ll keep the patina, even if I get rid of the surface rust, and maybe try some very basic pinstriping on it.
It’s almost in running condition as is, so it’ll be cool to have something that looks this rough which is perfectly functional.
