Our 1986 Carlton Kermesse 501 was sold to a local gent called Roy.  A beautiful machine, equipped with Shimano Golden Arrow drivetrain and Sakae Ringyo finishing kit, plus a few choice NOS goodies from our stock.


This stunning timewarp 1991 GT Timberline went up for sale at the shop.  Super cool and 99% original.


We finished the restoration of Richard’s gorgeous 1949 Vindec roadster.


Work started on Laura’s circa 1980 road bike, believed to be a Dawes but not 100% certain.


We built up another 1999 Giant CFR Pro, this time with a few modern refinements, and sold it to Mike.


Sharon’s Bianchi was among the nicest of the modern bikes in for servicing.


Ged’s owned-from-new 1994 Dawes Quantum in well preserved condition, after a tune-up and fitted with some fresh brown rubber.


This splendid triple rail Brooks saddle with hairpin front spring was a great talking point with customers, it came fitted to a vintage BSA singlespeed roadster in need of restoration.


The search for the heaviest duty cotterpin press is finally over, with this pre-war monster courtesy of Fred.


Liam’s new fixed build ready to roll, after a serious accident wrote off its treasured predecessor.


Long overdue visit from our old DRC partner Shawny, and his awesome BMW 635CSi.
