We are an independent bike shop based in Metheringham just outside Lincoln but our customers come from all over the country. If you need something doing, give us a call and we'll try and help. Whether it's OE repairs, motor work or something custom. We even sell complete bikes.

We are everyday regular riders. Our own bikes range from the 'teens' to the 2000's but most of our miles are done on knuckles and pans. Experience includes 10+ years working for the 'motor co' as well as time spent in major US custom shops and all our work is guaranteed.

Paying the bills

As the rich and famous say- "its not all glamour".

A simple job but worth doing.  Don't put up with too much 'wobble'.  Up and down might be bearings, sideways might be shims.

Star hub rebuild.  Remove, clean, and measure.  Odd bits alone can be replaced but if it's all a bit tired you can replace everything with a complete kit.  Oversize bearings are also available.

This kit is particularly good because this old hub didn't have a grease nipple.  The cover on the new kit did so that's another advantage as its means you don't have to take the cover off to re-grease everything.

It's just two hours labour plus the parts.  Bring your bike down and we'll do it while you wait.  Don't keep putting it off.

Some black paint on that new chrome and a few road miles will soon restore that old patina!
