Some Klapprads Part 1

Latest Buy, a Luxus: combine Luxury with Lexus (Salubrious Japanese Car) with a separating German Town Bike.

Ad that came with the bike

Velocino as it was this morning

Bolt for steerer before sawing and brazing.

Tubes and handgrips for steerer laid out. The T bar is a scooter steerer.

Tubes which fit inside can be cut with a pipe cutter because the cutter leaves a large burr inside the tube.

Outside tubes are cut with a hacksaw after marking a cut line with the cutter.

Steerer and steerer bolt almost done.

After not buying bikes for a while, and even selling my DA40 bike, I succumbed to a Facebook ad and bought a quite rare (I'd never heard of it anyway) Luxus bike.  A few pics are shown above, and this page explains a bit about them.  Suspension of any sort is quite rare on folding bikes, and this one looks quite cool I think. I bought it from Daniel who had a complete stable of bikes (Bickerton, Mostie bike, Moulton etc. etc. in a room in nearby North Melbourne.

As well, I've dragged my Velocino out to finish it off after almost a year of not much happening. I'm making a fairly minimalist steerer for the bike which shares its back end with this mule train load carrier.

Will report more later, Regards
