We Buy Bikes

Classic, Vintage, Rare & Cool Bikes.

Our goal is to get vintage bikes, that would otherwise be destroyed or left rusty and dusty in some old barn, garage or basement, back on the roads.

Bikes are the original green machine



We are always looking for Vintage Bikes and unique finds. If you have a vintage bike, classic bike, or that rusty barn item or that bike in your garage or basement that you just don't know what to do with, give us a call 


If you have a antique or rare bike with a provenance, we are interested in purchasing that bicyle. We specialize in restoring old bikes, slowly, carefully and while maintaining the original patina, decals and paint. 


If you have very special bike,  one of that no one else has/had. We are interested in acquiring that bike be it a; road bike, mountain bike, track bike, tria bike, folding bike, tandem bike, motorized bike, e-bike or scooter; we are interested.
