Classic Frame Restoration

Restore Your Classic Steel Frame

Return to a time when cycling had soul and bikes had character – Return your frame to its former glory

Starting Point

Before we even see your frame, we listen…

Every project starts with your requirements. It’s really important to us that we find out what is most important to your project before we begin.

Recreating Original Decals

We have several suppliers for classic frame decals, including Reynolds and Columbus tubing transfers.

However we can also have custom decals made if the transfers are not available.

Common Upgrades

New Parts

Many customers take the opportunity to fit new parts to their frame. We can supply many new retro parts which look great on any classic frame.

Complete Rebuilds

Ask us to rebuild the whole bike in our workshop. We are happy for you to supply any classic replacement parts and we can advise you what will work best.

New Retro Builds

Or take the option to build the whole bike with brand new retro styled parts, which keep the look of a classic bike but with modern improvements.

What Customers Say

“My recently purchased Hetchins Magnum Opus frameset which has had the head tube lugs chromed and the frame refinished in colours of my choice. Paul removed the previous owners initials from the head tube and fitted the new badge which I supplied. All work carried out by Ellis Briggs Cycles who did an amazing job I am really happy with how it’s turned out.”
