Future episode of "The Repair shop"

Post by coppinpr »

Just a heads up for anyone interested, keep a lookout for a future episode of the popular "repair shop" tv show. They intend to feature the restoration of a Hawtins "Bucking Bronco" bicycle.They have asked me if they can use some of the company history from my web site, which is how I came to hear about it. They SAY they will inform me when it's about to be aired but it might be some time I suspect. Health and safety would have a field day if this machine came out today :lol:

but would you have lived to tell the tale? with only a front brake and the need to lift your feet from the foot rest and lean back to slow the back wheel going arse over tit for the classic collar bone fracture was always on the cards I suspect. !CYCLING!

They had them at Butlin's.
Dead easy to ride; the action is intuitive.
I remember trying to work out a multi-speed version for road use, while waiting for the funfair to open...
