My brother Renshaw sold (gave) me boxes of rusty parts and I built this bike with under the mentorship of Tony Bairstow.  Over the last 7 years I have regularly hill-climbed it, flat-tracked it, ridden London traffic, crashed in the mud, in the rain, in the snow, and on top of the hill on top of my brother.  It’s my bike and I love it!
