We take old donated bikes, some vintage, and convert to a street legal electric conversion which has a 40-50mile + range and an assisted speed of 15mph. We aim to convert 5 more. One being a trike and one a folding bike. These will be offered free to Shedders on loan, on their own risk, to aid health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation. The kits cost around £450 to £550 plus ancillaries to make the donor bike serviceable. We hope to also build a solar charging station to charge these bikes so it doesn’t cost or use carbon fuelled power.
ON saturday THE 24th of NOVEMBER 2018
Our Purple Popup Shed gazebo will be at the Winter Festival Street Market. Selling a few items like bikes, chopping boards, clocks and our new calendars, but mainly for exposure and info about our Men’s Shed and Men’s Sheds in general. Come along and chat with the Shedders about what goes on in the Shed and how it could be a great way to make new friends in a similar situation, learn new skills, pass on your skills or just for a nice cuppa!
