About me

Based in Kent in southern England, I have been involved with bikes from a very early age, in fact for over fifty years.
My weekends are taken up by my position as an event mechanic on both Wiggle's and Cycling Weekly's sportive series as well as Eroica Britannia, but the rest of my time is devoted to my passion of restoring classic steel lightweight bikes.
























Where it all began.....

Davies Brothers in Cuppin Street in Chester, the local cycle shop who looked after a lot of the local club lads bikes, where at the age of thirteen in 1962, I began a Saturday job as workshop assistant on a wage of ten shillings for the day.  One of my first jobs was to help build two Campagnolo equipped Woodrup Italias for two members of the local Deeside Olympic club....... the rest is history !
















PORTFOLIO

What I can do for you

I am constantly sourcing frames and components as well as complete bikes to fully restore.
I also restore customers own bikes.
Should you have a "dream" vintage bike in mind then I will undertake commissions  to source and build this for you.
I use internationally reknown specialist painters and chromium platers to refinish all frames.


All restored bikes come with a three month component warranty.

I ship worldwide.



Cycling Weekly quoted in their recent article " Retro rides "...

So now, as well as former club racers who've perhaps built the dream bike of their youth, newcomers to cycling, old and young, have got into retro bikes. They like them for their aesthetics, for their history, and, in the case of many newcomers for their connection with the heroic past ..............
Retro bikes are not big business yet (and perhaps that's part of their appeal), but they are an established phenomenon, and a growing one.
