I stumbled across this on CGOAB. Check this delightful 1945 British film on making a Raleigh bicycle from steel bars to finished product.http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/07/13/how-a-bicycle-is-made/
I wonder how much of the craftsmanship shown there still exists in today's bikes.
very interesting film.
thanks for posting.
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.
Killer film was that old boy dipping with out a glove? black enamel permanent black glove.
That was cool video. As impressive as the BMW plant in south carolina
Good film!! Thanks for sharing.
