Raleigh: How a bicycle is made (video from 1945)

Now this is just a treat, I love history, bikes and manufacturing. This combines them all! A video from the British Council, showing the manufacturing process of Raleigh bicycle factory right after the war in 1945. 17 minutes of full on awesome. More like this please!

Even the ending of the film is full of awesome, the number of bikes and cyclists on the streets is something we should have today as well.

You can find more information about the producers from here: britishcouncil.org/film.
