    Spotted in Sydney

    I was walking around the Rocks in Sydney on Sunday morning. Some of the roads are closed on a regular basis and they have a street fair selling local crafts and food. I was looking for a bacon and egg roll but got distracted by some gyoza, the Japanese version of jiaozi. After buying a few tea towels and aboriginal art pillow covers for the spouse, thereby creating negotiating space for more bike purchases, I came upon a track bike.

    Hehe, noticed it was made from MAX, including fork and now I was interested. The owner came by and gave me the background. That's him standing by his ride. It's a Jim Bundy and made locally. Apparently Jim is in his mid-80's and still building. This one was bought from his son Peter. It's a beaut and today is a great day for riding.
