Hammered Bronze

One of the special finishes we currently offer, Hammered Bronze is just like is sounds, it's a bronze colour with a textured finish. Here is Tom G's forks and bars that we had done as a test, they were a few years old and while still usable they had seen better days cosmetically. We tried a wet clear lacquer on the bars but it reacted with his grips when Tom came to use a spray to install them, so lesson learned there, we won't use the lacquer, the finish is durable enough anyway. See pricing for this after the photos. We have coated sample of this at the shop, you really have go see it in the flesh.




Bar knurling is preserved.

Steerer taped to allow headset race installation.

RedLine Proline

In late 1980 we chose RedLine Proline frames for our Alans Team bikes. Alan Woods, Dave Arnold, Mike Chilvers and Mark Scully built these white framests up into bikes. They were raced at the indoor race at Belle Vue, Worlably outdoor and Glasgow bike show indoor. Out of these 4 only Mark Scully kept his all this time but it was involved in garage fire in 2013, but Mark true to his word brought the bike back over to Wigan and we are now working on restoring it.

The bike as we got in December 2013.

The frame and fork, despite the "smoke" finish was in very good condition and wasn't thrashed at all. The seat post and stem were stuck in so we used John Lee's services to remove these for us. 

Next we had the frame and for blasted prior to painting. Special care was taken to preserve the frame number, crispness of the welds, etc.



Looking better, eh?

Fork steerer taped to keep threads clean.

 Next up the fork lower end caps need re-chroming. The decals need installing. If you look at the goto above the frames actually had 1980 frame stickers and 1981 forks stickers. We have a full range genuine RedLine restoration decals in stock.
