Rustic

Nearly everything here is rustic, but I eventually chose to photograph my SUWESUWE

We met a guy riding this homemade bicycle a couple of weeks ago and I fell in love with it and bought it from him!!   It is beautifully crafted considering that he would not have had many tools. He had ridden it 40 kilometres the day we met him.....he was delighted to sell it, but no one in the village could understand why we bought it!!

  3. This belongs to a museum!! Most amazing find, so glad you could talk the owner in parting with it. Thank you for sharing and waiting for more.

  4. I would luv to show this to the mountain bikers that are here in Jackson Hole - don't think they would get 40 kms with it. What an amazing chap - great photo too
