Renovation of bicycles
We also renovate bicycles
You can order only partial repairs or complete renovation. The negotiations for renovation or repair of a bicycle must be based on provision of photographic documentation of the machine that is to be renovated. Its technical condition, completeness and state of disrepair, damage or destruction always provide substantial information for initial considerations of the time required and the price of the work.

Photo gallery: Comparison of a machine before and after renovation. Example of renovation of a French Levocyclette machine, manufactured in 1910, with preference for authenticity with preservation of all the original components, including the tires. The machine was first completely dismantled, all the components were compared with the original documents, the gear system was repaired (mechanical damage prevented its functioning), all the components were carefully cleaned, brushed and polished and then treated with anti-corrosion solution and conserved with a special mixture of wax and other additives.
The price of this renovation was approximately CZK 25,000.
