I have no connection to "Bicycle Portraits", except as a satisfied customer. Very satisfied.

Samples: Joseph Mafale and Tanki Mohapeloa.

Joseph M.'s bicycle looks in many respects like a 1930's/1940's "Constructeur" bicycle, with drop handlebars approximately level with the seat, large-section tires, and an emphasis on reliability.

Tanki M.'s trailer is not like common U.S. commercial trailers, but it incorporates several clever/subtle design elements. For example, the trailer tongue is triangulated. Many commercial trailers use a simple tube — which is cheap to build but is springy and makes it hard to carry anything other than light loads. Similarly, Tanki's trailer wheels have close-spaced spokes, and the forks supporting the wheels are well-braced. The bracing is inexpensive rebar, but used efficiently.
