A Bicycle Journey

Our good friend Adam Bell recently sent us some photos of a restoration project he had been working on. A vintage Motobecane that definitely needed some love. The bike arrived to Adam in this state... 


A few days of magic in Adam's kitchen/workshop...


And she was up and running...


Adam sent through some very nice detailed photos of the finished bike...













So what the hell does this have to do with Japan? Well after all his hard work Adam then sold the bike onto his friend Kitayama-san who lives up in Nagahama, Shiga prefecture and helps organise a local Tweed Picnic cycling event. He sent Adam some photos of the bike in it's new home...



A big thank you to Adam for sharing these photos and a little reminder that you can still buy Adam's superb Bicycle Dictionary and stunning new poster from Circles in Japan and many other good bike & book stores worldwide.
