Crossing the threshold

Posted on March 22 2011

Right in the middle of Shanghai, down a lane off Donghu Lu, through a gate and across a garden we found what we were looking for. With a fresh coat of paint and a shopping list, Factory Five found it’s home. We handed a carton of cigarettes to the bao-an, gave Park Tools a call and rolled up our sleeves.

And by-jingo we’ve done it. A workshop in the front, studio in the back and a kitchen downstairs. It’s as neat as it’s ever going to be so better take the photos now. Now to order a gallon of grease and start choosing components. Bring on the rims!
