Wooden bar end plugs now available….

Wooden Bar Ends-IMG_8778_003

I’ve been doing a little fettling over the Winter on the Guvnor and wanted to change the bar end plugs from the Brooks ones to something more native to the UK. The Brooks ones look great but are a bit flimsy and apparently not made in the UK. I met a wood turner at a fair some time ago and we have kept in touch, last year he moved to Warwickshire and is not a million miles for the home of Pashley. I gave him an old bar end plug as a template and asked him if he could make me something using native wood that would compliment the bicycle. Yesterday I received two pairs of bar end plugs, one pair in a burr elm (from a tree chopped down in Warwickshire!) and the other pair made of spalted beech. I like the contrast of the cream and dark brown and think they look most stylish on the Guvnor. 
The gentleman who made them is happy to make bar end plugs for other bicycle lovers so if you are interested please email me marklord75@gmail.com and I will forward your details to him and he will liaise with you direct.

I have been lucky to take part in  the Benson Veteran Bicycle Ride on a couple of occasions on my old Philips trade bike. Bikes have to be pre 1930’s although I’m sure a few newer ones slip through the net too! Here are a few images that I took a couple of years ago. Enjoy them and feel free to share them on your own blog and Facebook pages with a credit to my new blog  www.mybritishbicycle.me. Thank you.
