1972 Schwinn Varsity RestorationDecember 21, 2020
Prewar Lodbell Horizontal Spring Saddle Restoration for 1938/1939 Shelby Traveler BicycleDecember 21, 2020
Hutch’s wife drove by our shop and saw bicycles outside. She quickly turned around and stopped in to see us. She noticed a bunch of our vintage Schwinn bicycles and fell in love. While she was here Noel showed her some of the restorations that were in progress. She was blown away. She said I’m sending my husband here! He has some old bikes that he’s going to need to have restored. The next day, Hutch arrived with his Schwinn stingray. He instantly knew that he found the right place to get his bicycle restored. He wanted to keep as many parts as the possible original, but some of his parts were beyond salvage, so we sourced vintage Schwinn replacement parts from eBay, such as the stem, fenders, crank, sprocket, chain guard, rear-wheel, and dry transfer decals. Originally he wanted the bicycle painted the same color red that it was, to begin with, but when he saw the custom low rider that was painted a metallic purple, he had to have that color. Noel worked his magic with the paint gun and the metallic purple came out spectacular! Once the reassembly and finishing touches were completed, Hutch picked up the bike. He couldn’t believe it! It exceeded his expectations. He stared at it for a while taking in every detail then proudly road it around the parking lot. He’s another happy customer who now rides like iride!
