How Bicycles Used To Be Made

Raleigh have released this fascinating documentary from 1945 produced by the British Film Council on how a bicycle is made.  It shows British bicycle manufacturing on an industrial scale in the halcyon days before health and safety, CNC machine tools and carbon fibre.  The film shows how every component of the bicycle was made, from rolling the steel frame tubes to the manufacture of the spokes.  The film  is a classic of British bicycle history and well done Raleigh for releasing it into the public domain.
