Factory Tour A photo guide to the building of a Paper Bicycle. A much more detailed factory tour is on Flickr. The view from our factory porthole. A container of Paper Bicycles USA bound A bicycle just before it gets boxed One person, one bike, one at a time. A Fleet of expencive dominos. Brass badges for The Standard Hotel. This makes sure all the handlebars are the same. Lots and lots and lots of handlebars We grease almost everything, most manufactureres don’t. Chain Panels freshly baked at our powdercoaters oven. We shot blast the frames so the powder sticks better If the frame painting is flawed bicycles go in this box. Michael’s 1st day was building these wheel racks. Nick’s removing labels from all the rims, very therapeutic Each mudguard needs four holes added to it. All mudguards are sanded by hand ready for painting. Each frame is numbered in approximatly the order they are built into bikes. The first 200 frames needed their seatclamp braize thickened. Factory life is endless boxes coming and going Michael is removing the “Miranda” logo from the cranks. Bags of laser cut chain panels The rice paddy opposite our frame factory in Taiwan These are our frames being welded in Taiwan. All our bicycles start life as tubes being cut on these tools.
