At the beginning of last year's summer, I purchased this old road bike as a way to work on something with my hands. There is something truly rewarding and life-giving in the process. Through a time frame of over a year and a half, this side project is finally complete. I've named the bike, W-001, as a simple way to remember my first year of working in the industry.
I've also created custom cherry veneer handle covers as an interesting alternative to handlebar grip/tape. You can view the process here
