First published 1900, this is a classic guide to making and maintaining bicycles and tricycles. The information was originally published in “Work”, a publication of which the author was an editor, and has been condensed into this easy-to-digest handbook. “Cycle Building and Repairing” will appeal to those with an interest in vintage bicycles or making their from scratch. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian writer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the ‘do-it-yourself’ book, producing many works on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber’s Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Contents include: “Introductory, and Tools Used”, “How to Build a Front Driver”, “Building a Rear-driving Safety”, “Building Tandam Safeties”, “Building Front-Driver Tricycle”, “Building a Hand Tricycle”, “Brazing”, “How to Make and Fit Gear Cases”, “Fittings and Accessories”, “Wheel-Making”, “Tyres and Methods of Fixing Them”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
