Bicycle Service

Tig welding silver and brass brazing services available.

    Hi! My daughter has 2 vintage Raleigh bicycles (1 ladies, 1 men’s) that need restoration. Not sure exactly how old they are but they are at least 40-50, years old, I think. Do you do this kind of work? If so, I would like to get a gift card or voucher for her to get the project started. Could you provide that? If you need more info or pictures, please let me know! Many thanks, Diane Williams
