I have bought an ‘8 Freight !
…spring is in the air and I am in love with my ‘8 Freight’
There is a story here, but the workshop is calling, so in brief.. I have to collect 17 gallons of Olive Oil arriving in Newhaven by Sailboat
I am also in love with ‘Dave’, well one of his frames, recently purchased .‘Dave’
.. but it seems summer is arriving next week!
Having gotten soaked on my ride from the station, it was made all worth wile turning into ‘Jacobs farm shop’ and seeing the ducks enjoying the newly formed puddles .
A magical place.

We’re a group of filmmakers currently developing a short-film to be submitted to a film festival and i’m currently looking for an individual that would be interested in portraying the CYCLIST role in one of the scenes.
It’s based in the surrounding areas close to London. Travel and food expenses will be covered.
Film Project: “AS IT COMES”
Storyline: The Journey of Life for one man is forever altered by one fleeting moment and the improbable chain of events that ensues.”
This is a meditation on memory, the indifference of nature, and the transformative power of small occurrences. It explores how one derives meaning from nature and the forces that act within it.
Here, inspiration and longing are analogous to natural spectacle and the passage of time… nature may be indifferent to our wants and desires but is necessary for us to lead more meaningful lives.
Film Shoot Period: 9th March – 18th March 2018
Anyone that you know that is interested, please give this email to get in contact with me as soon as possible.
Well it looks like the shop will open in December after all !
No ‘Black Friday’, but you are most welcome to come and negociate a deal on any bike,or to chat about a custom build. Lead times at this time of year shrink from 1-3 months, to 1-3 weeks.
The ‘showroom is viewable tho not finished..
The same goes for restoration, repainting and re-chroming etc..
Its also a good time to get things looked at/serviced before the winter finds out your bikes weaknesses. Surely not the time of year to breakdown.
Here is a photo of Raybel this time last year in dry dock at ‘Maylandsea’ essex.
And the ‘showroom’;
See you soon!
In order to maintain my sanity over the coming months, I am afraid I will have to close the shop until the new year.
‘Raybel ‘has spoken and in order to continue her preservation and restoration I must act.
Keeping the shop open would mean I would have to work seven day weeks, and although I have become accustomed to six and a half day weeks, I found I do look forward to the occasional half day off.
I believe it is all for the greater good, we have come a long way this year, and we are hoping next year to see a ‘sea change’ in Raybel’s fortunes.
I shall continue work ‘behind the scenes’ finishing the showroom downstairs and gathering more exotic stock.
I do apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
Rob and Raybel.
“Stop The Press” !
The saying ” if you want to find something, stop looking for it” is a myth.
Yes folks, I spent much of yesterday looking for my passport, in fact frantically looking for my passport. My last resort was to stop looking and get on with the rest of the day, and hope its presence would reveal its self. But alas my flight leaves in 2 hours and no sign.
The good news is that the shop will be open now and not closed tomorrow Saturday 17th June, so please come down and buy some bikes, I have some great stock at the moment!
