Classic bikes require classic knowledge, with classic techniques, classic skills and a workshop equipped to deal with the specific requirements of a classic steel bike.

I have a comprehensive workshop, fully equipped with the best tools from Campagnolo and Park. I’ve been using these tools for over 30 years on all of the classics. I learnt my mechanic trade on the bikes from the 70s, 80s & 90s. From simple servicing and repairs to frame prep, alignment and repairs. Send me a message and I’ll give you a quote.

This is one of a series of new projects that I’m planning, so please keep checking back here for updates or send an email to me at for more information.
