Passing Through the Studio

Here are a couple of nice bikes that have passed through the Busyman studio over the last few months for a touch of leather trim here and there. Ged's RIH-Sport, Tri's Eddy Merckx and Goran's Cinelli. Why don't I have one of these for myself?

Fancy Doubles

A pair of double straps I finished for Tristan on the weekend. Double laminated with a woven core layer to prevent stretching, stitched to prevent delamination. There's another set in black on the way.

Here's What We Did Today

Some shots of the little showing by the students from my 'Cycle Craft' Fashion Design Studio. Why the pained look on my face? It's something to do with Melbourne's awesome ability to turn on the weather just when you don't need it. In any case the garments looked great as do the colours in these shots. Thanks for the photos Blaine, and the bikes.

The Whole Gang

A huge thanks goes to Lena for allowing us to crash her appartment this morning!

Michael Jordan 23

Just finished this set for a new concept bike by Southside Bikes. Based on Michael Jordan's famous number 23 with the Chicago Bulls. Baseball style stitch detail in keeping with the general American sport theme. Sheep skin on a Selle Italia Turbo.

On the Road to Sydney

This lot are about to land at Sable and Argent in Wooloomooloo, Sydney. It's the corporate id set. The store is looking good if their blog is anything to go by.

Frames for the Summer

The weather is starting to warm up again and people are thinking about riding again. These frames are all off at the powder coaters for a nice fresh spring makeover. Amongst this lot: a road bike, a shopping bike, a corporate bike and a ladies bike.
