How a Bicycle is Made - Raleigh, 1945
How to make a Raleigh, circa 1945. No carbon fiber in sight. Just good ol' steel and the scary tools required. Remove the glamor of all things bike - and it looks sorta like a metal shop - a dirty old metal shop.
Check out how they "paint" the frames. Ah, the good ol' days of no OSHA and EPA to worry about - or whatever the British equivalent is. I get a kick out of these vintage films and how things were manufactured.
