    Bikamper, the picture is not so clear to show for instance the gears, but with balloon tyers like that FAW might also be able to ride on water?

    Single speed with coaster brake, izak. I can actually lock up the rear wheel. Tire pressure is 0.8 bar.

    Great! Only one gear tends to be hard work for the upperleg pistons, getting started and on steep terrain. Here we call a 'coaster brake' a 'back peddal brake' Some heavy "compatible" industrial machinery you got there with FAW on the photo !

    I commissioned four of those machines in Durban, way back in 2001.

    Haven't been on a bicycle for a while but I did put a new rear wheel on my old Bridgestone MB-3 and took it out to the Silver Comet Trail. This one was a Christmas present from my father many years ago. I believe it's 1986 production.

    I haven't been on a bicycle since the day before my foot surgery. That was back in June.

    I've forgotten if I ever mentioned this bicycle on this forum.....if I have, consider this a progress update. It's the only bike I have ridden in the last year or so. You still have to pedal pretty hard up steep hills, but it is completely street legal in our state. It has turned out to be completely reliable and very relaxing to ride, while still getting in some acceptable exercise for an "old" guy.

    I really like building weird stuff, but I never expected this to be so pleasant and easy to use. There were some really smart people, a century ago. I want to build a "1910 Wall" for my next one.
