Old New Steeds - Our Upcycles

Friday was a happy day. Emile, friend and owner of Starling & Hero popped by after work to drop off our 'upcycles' and sip a pumpkin ale together. We're over the moon, wind in the hair and all that…

Ida really wanted a basket, then we remembered she already has one. We /missioned/ through some of our last bits of storage and there it was. We found the fittings still attached to another bike of hers. We whipped them off and got to work on her new vintage cruiser fitting the basket late that evening. Big smiles!

Mine was given that finishing touch by adding a beautiful leather Brookes saddle - originally a gift I gave to my old man but it somehow didn't ever gel on his Trek MTB! Thanks for being understanding dad.

Summer just got a whole lot better - cheers Emile.
