Hi all,

I've been a lurker on this forum for quite a while and I just wanted to take the time to introduce myself (plus a sneaky little bit about my current project!)

Before I give a proper introduction to what I'm doing, a little about myself, I'm a regular on many of the track and single-speed forums so some of you may know me. My name is James.
I've always had my own little businesses ever since a very young age, but I've always been trying to find something which combines the love of my bike and running my own business.


I've been working with professional riders, mechanics and engineers to produce some unique and tasteful goods which look cool, ride awesome and are the highest quality possible.
Originally starting out in my garage by myself, things have really picked up and I've just moved into a bigger premises where everything gets done in-house.

Services we currently offer:

. Paintwork (both powder-coat and 2k)

Welcome to RetroBike. Looks like you are doing some interesting stuff in a "keeper of the flame" type of way. One word to the wise the mods don't take kindly to folks just promoting their business but I'm sure you already knew that...

Welcome aboard :)

Nice website and some very nice paintwork! There's always a big interest in getting powdercoating or quality paintwork redone.

Good to see someone turn their interest into their occupation as well.

How much discount do RetroBikers get? :lol:

Was just considering getting a frame powder coated.

Might be in touch soon.

Good luck with the business.

Thanks for your replies guys, appreciate it.

I've kept things pretty formal and classic on the design side.

I'm sure I may be able to help RBers out :wink:

For those of you that are interested, I received a few vintage track frames today which are going back to the original colours they where in the 60s. Thinking of writing a small blog on this thread just showing the cool stuff I get in?

Shaun, 2K (2 pack) isocyanate paint is thick stuff for cars, not suitable for bikes.
Sent you PM

We use a special type of etch primer after getting all the tubes and frame details flat. Our paint-work is very thin and durable.

Check out our latest demo frame.

2 tone from plumb-crazy to lilac. Metal-flake and gold-leaf have also been added, building her up next week.

Good luck with the venture. Could you reproduce an Aquafade paint job to this standard do you think ? If so PM me details on timescale, prep required, costs etc. I would be looking for an original factory quality powdercoating job including sus forks.
