Super Rustic

Dimitri Hetinga of the Super Motor Company - maker of the Salt Shaker (above), was just over in England to start work on a new bike. A locally sourced miniature mechanic was brought in to deal with some very small very rusty nuts (and he only charges 4 Cadbury's Creme Eggs per hour).
Strange to think that the copper plumbing pipe and brass fittings that was used by the former owner as a bodge exhaust on this Welsh fieldbike may soon be replaced by slightly more scientific titanium. Crated in finest chipboard, ready to be shipped to the SMC Research and Development facility. In the meantime the SMC dirt bike is nearing completion, and will be baptized at Dirt Quake II. Watch this space... BP

Couldn't he find a shitbox field bike and midget mechanic any nearer to home? Man, that's dedication.
