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.

Spent some time fitting parts to the 1913.  Gas lighting front and rear, very nice Prestolite tank all plumbed in.

Looks ok I think, all era correct and hopefully not too cluttered.

Hope not too much rattles off next time she's out.

Rear rack is slightly wrong, its a 1915 on part with a welded on extension at the bottom.  It shouldn't really be fitted to a fender stay mount but there's no real weight to it.  In 1915 they added a tab to the frame to mount the rack.  You can also see the Fidelity light.

The bike is finished now.  I just have to fit a pump.  I picked up a Bridgeport pump in Oregon last month.  For those who care its the de-luxe Austin model, 19 1/2" long, 4" longer than standard for extra whooosh!!!  Pump needs a new washer inside.
