How long does it take?


Our workshop operates on a rotation system, this means that once your bike is booked in with us it will be added into the list of current repairs. 


We work through this list sequentially so the time your repair will take is dependant on how many other repairs we have in at the time of booking. Therefore repairs are likely to be completed quicker during the week than at the weekend when the shop is at its busiest. Dropping bikes in to us earlier in the day is usually condusive to a shorter completion time.


Repairs can take anything from half a day to ten days to be completed, this is dependant on current work load and availability of required parts. It's always worth contacting us to enquire about turnaround times if you are in need of an express repair, where possible we will endeavour to meet you requirments.


Why not consider dropping your cycle in for its pre season service during the autumn, winter or early spring to beat the longer turnaround durng summer.


This is an example of a restoration of a classic Raleigh Chopper that we carried out in our own workshop.
The cycle had sat in a shed for many years and was rusty, the tyres were Rotten and the saddle had a large split.

We found new tyres and had the saddle recovered, we cleaned and waxed the frame keeping the original factory paint and transfers and we polished all the chrome.

The cycle was stripped down to the frame with all bearings replaced and the cycle was fully serviced.


If you have a diamond in the rough and were thinking of having it restored then give us a call on 01923 824174
