It is always fun to bring memories to life.
We had the pleasure of giving this Raleigh a ‘factory reset’ over the past few weeks. Under the dirt, dust, and lots of rust was a beautiful bicycle.
This rusty little Pilot was a really fun restoration project! The bicycle’s owner chose to have the bike painted and some of the more character-building pieces chromed. The finished product shows it all and her childhood bike is ready to go!
Some old bikes just want to be resurrected from their state of rusty disrepair. They yearn to be born again as fresh, near-new machines waiting to hit the road… this bike was not one of those bikes.
Our latest restoration was a ton of fun. The scope of the work called for fresh paint and a few new parts but no headlight work or chrome plating.
This was a fun project. Lots of chrome polishing and cleaning. The real fun was re-routing the generator wires internally for a much cleaner look.
We had the pleasure of bringing a young lady’s childhood dream to life. She always wanted an old Schwinn cruiser and while trolling the antique shops she found the bike she could not live without.
This beautiful Warrior restoration came together super nice. Nothing beats fresh paint and chrome.
We had the honor to bring this Harry Havnoonian back to life.
This was a mini restoration we completed on a Western Flyer. We are most proud of the work we did on the non-functioning light.
This was one of my favorite restorations. The bike is owned by my pediatrician. He purchased it from his family’s bike shop a few decades ago.
This was a fun project. The old Schwinn American Deluxe was rustier than an old grill. Our orders were to restore it without doing any re-chroming or paint work. We were quite pleased with the results.
A few months ago a woman named Ann stopped by The Bicycle Escape with a very rusty bicycle and a story. The story goes that she grew up with little material wealth.
