This image has nothing to do with Fred’s latest project, but does show a bit of his ingenuity. The Velocette is a British bike of a certain era. British bikes of that era are known to leak oil. Bearings need oil. So let the bike leak oil onto the bearing. Brilliant!

So was it originally black, or not?
