If you're stuck for parts...
« on: July 08, 2015, 11:27:09 PM »
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

It looks like the kind of repair seen in episodes from the 2001 "Bush Mechanics" series, which was a very funny and "tongue in cheek" look at what some aboriginal blokes did to keep their vehicles going.
