Soulcraft Repair

This was a lovely handmade Soulcraft frame, which had an unfortunate high-speed incident with a bench – the rider also lost a couple of teeth, but he was probably more upset about the damage to his bike!

So I made a new headtube and downtube, and fillet brazed them in.

Repainted, and it’s as good as new!

A Pair Of Rohloff Upgrades

These bikes were for a couple who wanted to upgrade their existing Bromptons with Rohloff hubs.

It’s possible to match Brompton frame colours so the new rear triangle I fit doesn’t look out of place.

I do a kit if you want to upgrade your bike yourself, or I’m very happy to do the fitting here.

Cableless Brompton

Well, almost! This Brompton has a Sturmey Archer Duomatic rear hub which gives two gears and a brake with no cables – you backpedal a little bit to change gear, backpedal more to brake.

The front brake cable spoiled the look of the bike, so I ran it internally down through the stem.

Repairing a dented headtube

Not a pretty sight – a lovely Rivendell-made Saluki frame with a big dent in the head tube. Fixed it with a special expanding tool inside the head tube and some careful hammering on the outside, now good as new without having to replace the tube.

With a new paint job, it looks gorgeous:
