    Customising dreams

    hen Chaeli Mycroft made history as

    one of the first ever wheelchair

    boundathletes to complete the gruel-

    ling Comrades marathon on Sunday, the

    manufacturing methods of a local entrepre-

    neur played a big part in her journey.

    Her wheels were made by an inspiring

    mechanically minded maestro from Ken-

    sington.

    Zahier Davids, who owns Flywheel Cus-

    tomChariots, is proud of his involvement in

    Chaelis dream to take part in theComrades.

    It was touch and go with this project be-

    cause they only received late notice of her

    acceptance in the race, he says.

    But, I was not going to let them down be-

    cause I know what its like to have a dream

    and fight tooth and nail to achieve it.

    For Davids the dream started 16 years ago

    when retrenchment forced him to look at

    other ways of making money to support his

    family.

    Growing up in a community where cus-

    tomising bikes and cars was all around you,

    I was always interested, he says.

    His initial dream of studying engineering

    and design was cut short by a lack of funds

    and Davids went to work in retail.

    It however all changed when he was re-

    trenched.

    But I had to put food on the table, he

    says.

    Thats when he had the idea to restore and

    customise a bicycle.

    I knew less than nothing, he jokes.

    There was just this dream that I wanted

    to make a reality and I pushed ahead asking

    people in themotor trade and friends. It was

    mainly trial and error, but my persistence

    paid off.

    Youmust remember the internet was not

    as active back then, but when the bike was

    finished, it attracted a lot of attention in the

    streets and Ive just been learning and

    growing since then.

    Davids also explains that the quest for

    learningwasalso abouthis pursuit of perfec-

    tion in all of his projects.

    Theres no second best for me if the fin-

    ished product is notwhat I had inmind, then

    its simply not good enough. I pay a lot of at-

    tention to detail with every nut and bolt on

    the bike redone, replaced, or customised.

    Most of the bikes are original, but we redo

    almost everything to achieve specific de-

    signs.

    From those humble beginnings he nowde-

    signs and manufactures bikes, including

    low-riders, cruisers, choppers and motor-

    ised bikes.
