Motor Spares

The Motor Spares / Master Sports bike is finally finished. Latest finishing touches are the Busyman bar tape and saddle. I took it to the Craft Hatch Market today at Bikefest for its initial unveiling. It was liked by many. After the market I took it for a spin around the Yarra Boulevard under the first clear skys we've seen for days, the the 28mm tyres handle the rough surface beautifully.
