Come down and say hello. The Yard in Shoreditch will play host to this debut event on the last weekend of November. Admission is free via pre-registered tickets. 8ballbikes will have a selection of bicycles on display and we should have some individual components on offer too, from brass bells to leather saddles by way of handmade wooden mudguards.
It was whilst living next door to the Bayswater Road house once inhabited by playwright and novelist JM Barrie that James dreamed up the idea for the Author collection. Perhaps some shadow of the author’s inspiration crept in, like the orange glow from the streetlamp that cast its light on the blue plaque on Barrie’s old garden wall and the window of the flat where 8ballbikes was founded proper?
Our bicycles aren't mass produced by a big factory and we don't have boxes of them sitting in a warehouse. The frames are all hand made in small numbers and each complete bicycle is designed and assembled by hand in London. Just for you.
