NAME: Ian Roberts

BIKE: 1950s lawn mower parts with 2 stroke engine board tracker

LOCATION: Sydney/ Australia

BEHIND THE BUILD: Visual antiquity created in the modern era by a believer in holding onto historical objects for repurposing. He started off with a 1950s lawn mower and a 2 stroke motor. Gaining inspiration from the early 1900’s board trackers, Ian built this machine by hand and took the Bike Build Off brief to hear, to make the most with the least.

    Andrew Tabner says:

    Your machine reminds me of a bike Tibby Tompkins-Smyth built just after the war while at school at Shrewsbury. He’d built it from a butter churn, an acetylene lamp and a single stump from Lords. Tibby’s machine was the veritable berries as I’m sure is yours. Well done old bean.

    All the best old chap, up cycling at it’s best, just watch the ‘tasch doesn’t get caught in the chain 😉
