Swords to Plowshares May 15, 2012

One of the great things about the Bicycle is the time span the modern version covers.  This video shows the production process in an English factory (I guess Raleigh) in 1945 just after World War II.  Judging by the tone of the narrative, the bicycle industry was an important piece of the rebuilding process of British society.  When I see the workers doing their tasks they look competent and proud.  There are still many of these bikes out there, in fact I might have worked on one from this factory just the other day. 

Happy Bike Week!
