Catch-up post

Been a while since I’ve posted. It’s been pretty busy, so here’s a quick catch-up on what’s gone on in the last couple of weeks: Mouseycat might be sick. She had a very loose canine tooth removed the other day and we found she’d lost nearly a kilogram (nearly 2.2 lbs) since the last time […]

This forum thread follows the development of the model over 5 months and shows high-resolution versions of some of the preliminary work and the naked bike.
