Have bike, wood be prepared to travel
We spotted this fine pair of hand-crafted wooden mudguards the other Saturday in Broadway Market, just off Regents Canal in Hackney.
The bike was chained to a gate by a sign saying 'Bicycles chained to this gate will be removed'. The mudguards were done by a furnituremaker friend of the owner who specialises in this sort of thing.
Impervious to rust, but Dutch elm disease might be a problem.
