About This Book

An elegantly designed guide on how to find, buy, and restore vintage bicycles. An engaging handbook on one of the biking world’s most important trends, this is a step-by-step guide to the art of finding, restoring, and maintaining vintage bicycles. Cycling has become a very popular pastime in recent years. Whether for fun, commuting, or sport, there are millions of new cyclists every year around the world—with many developing a passion for vintage bicycles.

This book includes indispensable advice for vintage bicycle enthusiasts. Step-by-step photographs show readers how to set up their cycle for a ride in the city, in the countryside, or a vintage cycling event; special tools, products, and materials for restoration are outlined; and specific elements of each bicycle, such as the saddle, handlebar, and wheels are discussed in detail. Thirty of the most popular vintage models are showcased in specially commissioned photographs, and the historical significance of each model is provided. Equally rich in beautiful photos and practical tips, this book will appeal to cycling lovers and design buffs alike.
