Decide what kind of work the technical aspects of the bike require

There’s not a lot of fun to be had with a good looking bike that stalls every two hundred meters. First and foremost, after you’ve acquired a bike to restore, is to decide what kind of work the technical aspects of the bike require. Make sure it runs reliably at the very least!

Think of the way you want it to look

After that, although you’ve probably thought about it before now, it is time to think about the way you want your bike to look. You can purchase many different types of parts to give your bike a unique look and we encourage you to explore these!

Start looking for the right parts

Gauge restoration service and other companies can help you with finding the right parts, even when they are not made any more. This way you can always find the parts you need for your bike. If all hope is lost, they can usually even create something you need from scratch. Perfect if you’re trying to keep your bike original looking.

Work on the bike

After all that is done, you can start working on your bike! Take your time and enjoy the process, but be sure to ride your bike when it is done as well. We’re sure you’ll have lots of fun either way. Good luck!
