Faded Beauty

GC1 quadrant shifter

Here's a sneak peek of that lovely Lawrencia road bike we retrieved via the annual Boroondara Hard Waste collection. With a GC1 quadrant shifter and GH-6 Front Dynohub. Wait 'til you see closeups of the 30's post-modernist paint jobbie! fffhooar!!! More pics soon!

...And here's those promised Lawrencia pics on flickr.

(PS. We're famous now, here's the proof!)


  • That's cool-looking, all rusted up like that. Can't wait to see the After pics. (:

  • I'll say again.. I'm jealous of all this hard-rubbish action you guys are getting!

    Nice work re: the fame game! :)

  • I like the way the bar tape kind of melts into the wall.

  • I've heard there is a bloke in Toowoomba who buys old bikes and adds them to his front fence, i.e. the fence is made of them. Anyone seen it?

  • That (about the 'bike fence') is marvellous! Obviously, living in Ireland, I'll probably never see it but I'm very impressed. I know a bloke who uses an upturned American football helmet as a hanging basket and I thought that was good. You could probably do it with a cycle helmet but it may not work as well.
