Restoration Services

Considering buying a used or second-hand bike? 

There are thousands of bikes posted every day on Gumtree and eBay daily, there are some bargains out there… and an awful lot of worn out, damaged and broken bikes!

Handy tips to look out for:

This is not a complete list but there are few obvious things to consider when looking at a used bike:

  • Is the frame cracked or bent;
  • Are the forks bent of steering tube cracked;
  • Are the wheels damaged or worn out?
  • Are the gear shifters old and sloppy?
  • When was the chain and cassette last replaced?
  • Damaged or old tyres and cables?

Be aware that some projects can cost you hundreds of dollars just in parts.

Then again, some bikes are worth it…

We love old bikes and love to keep them on the road.

Nobody is more pleased than us when one of our customers walks in with an great deal they bought. We will work with you to build it back up to either original specifications or better (faster, stronger) than it was before.

This is your project and we are thrilled to be part of it

Is it worth buying a used bike?

It is worth remembering that the quality of entry level bikes has gone up in the last few years while the price has gone down.

We just got quiet a few 2015 Jamis bikes in store and they are $449 brand new!
