Classic Bikes

We love new bikes and enjoy the benefits of new technology, but our passion is for steel-framed European racing bikes from the 1970s to the 1990s and vintage cruisers. We carry a range of built classic bikes and classic bike frames. We also repair classic bikes. We specialize in Campagnolo components and have a small collection of vintage components in stock or we can help you with a parts search.

Below, see what’s new, classic framesets, and classic bikes. Please come by and take a look or, better yet, bring your classic bike by. We would love to see it.
