Vintage steel lightweight restoration and sales


Not just bikes, but a part of history.


Restoration Criteria

FRAME:  Firstly the frame and dropout alignments are checked before being sandblasted, their structural integrity checked and any pitting filled before being primed. The base colour coat is then added before new decals are applied and finally several coats of clear lacquer applied. Bottom brackets are then re-faced before build up.

COMPONENTS:   All components are fully stripped (literally to the last washer) and all bearings are replaced along with cables. Components are electronically cleaned and polished where appropriate before being reassembled.
Where "new old stock" parts are used they are listed as NOS.
All wheels are newly built with stainless double butted spokes.
