Shadows from Twenty

The Raleigh Twenty is a vintage bicycle from the late 60s. I bought one in 2009, which was my shopper, bike of choice for very short rides (<2 miles), etc.

One disadvantage of the bike was the brakes on the bike and the further hindrance to braking brought about by the steel wheels. It didn't bother me too much until recently. I actually tried to sell the bike, but there weren't any good offers, as many a prospect didn't know what was unique about this lovely gem.

Hence, I unlisted the cycle and decided to get it serviced. I had new aluminium wheels built and had the Sturmey-Archer Internal Hub serviced along with the bottom bracket, and had the shop replace the old cables. In addition, I added a new Brooks Cambium saddle (the women's version was on sale and I got just that - why not?). Last but not the least, I added a Dymotec bottle dynamo and Busch-Muller dynamo powered lights to make it ready for riding at night.

Out came a fantastic bicycle with better stopping power, so I could also use it to commute to and from work.
Below are some of my Raleigh Twenty, Meera! Some in B&W and some in color. All the color photos may not have a shadow in them, but I presume they would be of interest for vintage bicycle enthusiasts at least.

Shadow Selfie

Photo taken during one my recent commutes to work. The shadow has emphasized my belly the most LOL!
Still alive and kicking!

Happy Easter to all who observe.

Update

Hi everybody-
Two months ago, I had a bit of a health scare, but I am still around and kicking.
I had to shift priorities to other aspects of life that needed immediate attending to. Soon as I am caught up, I will be back.
I miss interacting with all of you.
Peace :)

Learning from a Metalsmith

When I need any jewelery, unless it is a automatic watch, I don’t usually have to go far.
Because the lady of the house is a classically trained Metalsmith.
Here is a photo from a rare occasion when I learned how to make an ear ring.
Dealing with a new editor. Will fix the formatting soon.

Book light 

It is amazing how much technology has improved. I am used to the bulky book lights of the 90's, until the recent purchase of an LED, rechargeable unit. Sleek they are!
