Antique bicycle restoration UK
With vast experience of reproducing parts for the manufacture of complete period bicycles we are also setup for full restoration work. When the information is available all missing components can be reproduced to appear as it would have left the factory while trying to maintain the patina that makes an antique bicycle attractive to own.
We can reproduce rims, spokes, hubs, bearings, cranks, pedals, saddles, brakes, handlebars, mudguards etc..
Full restoration including painting and lining, saddle re trims.
Any kind of spoking arrangement is no problem with experience in tangent, direct screw, adjuster and lock nut, tensioning arm such as on the Arial ordinary.
We specialise in Ordinary bicycles also known as penny farthings and early safety bicycles.
1876 Singer British Challenge
Looked quite complete and straight forward but required, full re spoking, new adjusters creating, frame straightening, new bars, reconstruction of worn areas, recreation of original lining, oilers, screws, bolts, nuts etc… The aim was to make the finished machine still look old and unrestored, I managed to maintain the original lining on the trailing brake for comparison of finish.
This Machine required: new rims, spokes, pedals, bearings, rear fork alignment, saddle re trim etc..
