Swedish Basement Project pt. 2 Update May 27, 2010

Not too long ago I covered a design and fabrication project that took place in a man’s basement in Sweden. Inspired by old Porteur builds, Christopher Robin decided to build a complete bicycle using rudimentary tools. With the success of his first build, Christopher decided to take on a second project. This time he pulled inspiration from old pursuit bikes.

I was just thinking about this the other day and whatdya know? The build is complete!

Check out the rest of the photos below!

Wow! If you nerd out about this kinda stuff like I do, check out the thread on Fixedgear.se for the process Christopher used to make this. Hopefully it inspires some of you to do the same!

    i wanna build frames so bad

  • Absolutely amazing!

  • Horatio Burton

    Very impressive indeed.
    Puts a lot of professional builders to shame! :)

    What kind of tubing is it?

    pretty bad ass. im very curious about the handlebars connecting to the forks like that.

  • @Horatio Burton:
    I’m just answering for Chrobin (the builder) here, since i’m from Sweden and have been following his build closely. It’s built from standard unreduced steel. Still it clock’s in just above 7kg complete, 7,1 to be exact.

    The man’s a living legend in so many ways, just wait and see until he finishes his next build!

    Pretty sweet! I wonder if he got any help from Winnie the Pooh?
