Kite Bike is a nice and tidy vintage bicycle workshop, based in Bucharest, Romania since 2008 . In this workshop i clean, repair, recondition, polish, lube, pimp and tune vintage bicycles. I ‘m collaborating with other workshops in Bucharest for chroming, coppering and painting services. Vintage bicycles means mainly road bicycles but also condorino, vintage city bicycles and of course, my friends and my bicycles. I’m using professional bicycle tools, professional cleaning substances, weldtite bearings, finish line grease and other great stuff. All the frames and components have been roughly inspected, cleaned, lubed and polished if necessary, so you can correctly judge their actual condition. All possible defects are written down in the auction if the problem couldn’t be solved. In the majority of my projects I’m using period correct components.
