Hi there! Your website is addicting. I'm barely starting out with bicycle restoration. I think I found a role model! LOL, What would be the best way to communicate with you?Thank you in advance!
Hi John,I need your help...I need to know the celeste Bianchi color about a bicycle with alloy frame early years 2000. It's a M alloy pro and the paint is pearly and glossy.The frame is mine and it has some scratches and the paint is blown away. So I would like to try to restore with a little brush.Can you help me to say to me the right code..or very similar code to make a right celeste color? Thanks a lot. Ciao Gerry P.S. My enail is email@example.com
I am about to embark on restoration of a 1950 Raleigh ( made in England) but see no way to remove rust and repaint without damaging some lettering and logos, all of which are original to the bike. Any tips? Thank you for your time.
I am going to restore my tour easy i am needing graphics fot the name and headbadge
Hi love your bikes, I need your help, I want to change out my Astabula crank for a Compagnolo or Nervar crank set, I would like to know the dimension of a 1972 Schwinn Super Sport bottom bracket diameter.and if you would know or recommend the necessary parts I need to change the crank set.thank you very much Sincerely Stephan Werick firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi John, Thank you so much for documenting how you restore classic bicycles. I am looking at doing my Trek 620 that looks like yours (before doing up!)what is the before and after value of a Trek 620? I am in the UK. Best wishes Robert email@example.com
Hi there, came across your website and its pretty informational which i like. Do you know where i could get either a identical Rear Derailleur for a schwinn prelude, its the exact model you restored or one that will produce the same function? Somebody broke mine.
I also own a 1993 Raleigh Technium Super Course. Over the years, I have upgraded the wheels, entire component group set, seat, headset, and handlebars so that only the frame is original. I love the turquoise and black color combination on the frame. The frame is is good condition, but the paint is peeling, scratched, and faded in some areas, the decals are fading and peeling a little, and there is a little rust under the bottom bracket. The original Raleigh badge is on the bike, but it is a little loose. I would like to restore the frame to its original factory condition. Here is a link to the picture of a Raleigh that looks much like mine when I first bought it https://images1.americanlisted.com/nlarge/56cm-raleigh-technium-super-course-aluminum-shimano-105-14-speeds-250-americanlisted_36361481.jpg.
Where can I get touch-up pain for the mid-1980s red Pro Miyata?
Your upgrade to the 1100 Trek looks good. Are you selling it? I sold mine to my brother a few years ago. He is looking for the triple chain ring and not having any luck finding it. Is there some place we are missing? Help would be appreciated.
Hi John,I am currently restoring a 72 5-spd like yours for my wife. I am wondering what product(s) you use on your paint and chrome?
Hey there, i was checking out your excellent site and was wondering if you could answer a question for me. I have a 1980 Miyata 912 that i want to convert to a shimano internal hub set up. how do i measure to find out if and what hub would fit? i think i want disc brakes on the front as well. does that seem feasible to you? it still has the original 600 hardware so i need to change all that out too.
