There are many specialist skills needed for bicycle restoration. Colwood Wheel Works Bicycle Restoration Courses are designed to give a thorough understanding of the specialist knowledge and techniques required for the restoration of bicycles made during the 20th century.

My Bicycle Restoration Courses are particularly relevant for restoring bicycles from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, but the techniques are also useful for bicycle of other eras.

The aim is to give you a very thorough understanding and the confidence to undertake specialist restoration work on your own after just one day of intensive training at my East Sussex workshop.

With just two students on each course at any one time there is plenty of time for individual help and instruction.
