What’s old is new again

Two old bikes had makeovers recently at the shop. One was an early 80’s Lotus and the other an 80’s Lemond. The Lotus was our new friend Allison’s commuter that she wanted to rejuvenate. We stripped it and repainted it and put on a brand new Shimano 105 triple group. Here’s the final product.

The other project was Paul’s vintage Lemond that he wanted new paint and decals for. Paul had recently had us restore his old Silca pump. The Lemond got a pretty blue paint job with masked yellow lugs.

And in the jig right now is Steven’s single speed. The fork has been built and the lugs are carved and ready for brazing. I won’t finish it until next week after I return from the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. I’ll tell you all about that too.
