Style Frank Kirk thought up this remarkable bike while working as a designer at the Ford plant in Dagenham, England. The frame is made of cast magnesium, and was a dramatically different approach to frame design than the typical bicycle frame with round tubing. The story goes that the bumpers on the Ford Sierra were the actual inspiration.

Magnesium is one of the lightest metals by volume , although its rigidity is quite a bit lower than steel. Magnesium is inexpensive and very environmentally friendly. Kirk boasted that a cubic meter of seawater contained enough magnesium to make a bike frame (although a tremendous amount of electricity is used in the process. It takes only 8 seconds to mold one frame.

This is the very rare Kirk Road Ranger, the off Road Hybrid version fitted from the factory with a modified rear brake mount to take a Mountain Bike U Brake for extra Tyre Clearance. An Example of the road ranger with Flat bars & Mudguards & Rack hangs in the london Science Museum. this bike has been built as a Retro Gravel bike with a great Bull Moose handlebar stem.
