Ever wonder how a bike is made?

I stumbled across this on CGOAB. Check this delightful 1945 British film on making a Raleigh bicycle from steel bars to finished product.

I wonder how much of the craftsmanship shown there still exists in today's bikes.

I watched a good bit of it. I like stuff like that. I used to watch "How it's made" all the time.

Funny you posted this now - I was very bored a couple nights ago & I watched a Youtube vid of How it's made - bike chains.
