We have a great passion for restoring and converting older race (and race-ish) bikes, usually from the late 70s, 80s and 90s.
Every bike is a small journey, we start by stripping the old bike to its frame, taking apart headset, bottom bracket and wheel hubs. All bikes get new sealed bearings bottom bracket, pedals, tires, chain, cassette, brake pads, brake / gear cables and bar tape. Wheels and headset are serviced if the quality and state of the components allows it, they get replaced otherwise. Any other part not in good shape will be replaced as well, such as brake calipers, brake levers, chainrings, derailleurs, seat, seat post, stem, bars, etc.
We can build custom bikes for your needs and taste, starting from one of the many frames and old bikes we have around our shop and in storage. Pass by our shop to have a chat about what you want from your bike and maybe we can put together a bike that will make you happy.
We are quite proud about the performance and smoothness of our refurbished bikes. Come and have a look and a test ride. Below are some of the bikes we have ready at the moment. All these can be altered if you like the bike but would prefer some changes.
A very vibrant color scheme on this aluminium frame from Torino, Italy. A mix of old and new technology make for a great race bike with some character.
New Miche wheels, Continental tires, brake levers, chain, cassette, shifters, seat, cables, seat, brake pads, pedals and bar tape. Refurbished Campagnolo brake calipers.
Although probably not the original finish, the yellow fluo overpaint on this Reynolds 531 frame is beautifully funky. All Shimano 600 components and Campagnolo shifter levers.
New bottom bracket, chain, Continental tires, brake pads, cables, pedals, seat post and bar tape. Vintage San Marco Rolls saddle.
