A couple of years back C. bought his first dragster at a local swap meet and he has been collecting and restorating them ever since. In all he has well over 12 bikes + frames. At present we have one bike in the loungeroom, two in the kitchen, one in the laundry along with the additional frames - these are just the better ones in the house!
One of his favourite bikes is his Mk 2 Raleigh Chopper. His next projects include a Raleigh Dominator he recently bought and a Mk 2 Chopper prismatic frame which he just purchased from England. He is also on the lookout for a Sears Screamer.
Here is his blurb of his latest ready to ride Speedwell Fury - with before and after photos.
Speedwell were a Sydney bike company similar to Malvern Star (Melbourne based) both were eventually bought by Raleigh. You don't see them around much. The main Speedwell bikes were Mustang and the Fury. Instead of Sturmey Archer it has Shimano bits also features a rear disc brake. I don't know why they did that it was very hard to source a threaded hub for the disc.
Here are a few pictures of the restoration.
Its good to have a hobby ;)
