Richie Goldsbury is one half of the semi-fictional character Bobby Goldsbury, as featured on the popular Spoke tee-shirt from a couple of years back. He's also a mad tinkerer, inventor, builder and rider of his own bikes. Take a look at the methods he used to construct a carbon fibre swingarm for his Kea-themed bike...

"This is mostly a time lapse of making the swingarm for my new bike, which is painted to look like a Kea (bird) though general opinion is it looks more like a lizard or a tree frog. I haven't put sound on the video. Was thinking "Thing Well Made", by The Muttonbirds, but it would be a bit untrue!"
