Many more people have been asking us to build them custom bikes from the many parts and frames that we house and also there has been a steady increase in the amount of people bringing in their own bikes to be restored. We love to hear stories of our customers bikes …… a son restoring his father’s old bike, a Mother restoring her bike for a surprise present for her daughter etc. Oh and don’t forget we also service and repair all types of bikes everyday and I believe we are the least expensive in our area and I would like to think the friendliest. Everyone is welcome to drop by to see what we do. Cheers to beautiful recycled bikes!!!
