Tour of Indian bike factories

The means of producing bikes in India, much of it still being produced on the
machinery purchased from the UK during the 1950’s is the most fascinating,
amusing, bewildering and highly interesting you will see.
Would you like to see a large sheet of metal turned into a massive length of chain?
Or a long length of steel plate turned into a wheel rim?
Perhaps you would be interested to see what is called ‘open hearth brazing’?
We will be taking groups of people for seven days, covering the itinerary you see under.
Actual months and dates will be decided, thinking of two visits per year.
Prospective dates will be August, October or November 17th to 24th and early February 2012 and April or May 2013.

Interested persons, please send an e-mail to or write to our
address. Full itinerary, hotel accommodation, costs etc on request.
