Google or Facebook "RLB Cycleworks" to see our shop and the products/services we offer! A question we are asked often. How do you offer so many nice refurbished bike for such low prices? I run a small, home-based vintage bicycle restoration shop out of my house in the North Suburbs of Chicago, IL. A home-based shop means low overhead, no storefront to pay for and no payroll.I have over 20 years experience fixing and restoring vintage road bikes and this is my passion. I'm very selective when I choose bikes to restore for resale.
Only solid, high-quality bikes (good restoration candidates) make it through my shop. You will be impressed with the attention to detail that goes into every bike I offer for sale. This is a museum-quality 1982 Pro-Miyata professional racing road bike which was painstakingly and FULLY restored by a reknowned vintage bicycle specialist in the North Suburbs.This is Miyata's pro-level racing bike with build quality which parallels 3Rensho and other premium Japanese bike manufacturers from its time. Completely re-done with gleaming new bright blue metallic paint (a slightly darker and more vibrant hue than factory-spec) and every nut and bolt polished and rebuilt prior to reassembly. Masterfully handcrafted "Aero" butted chromoly steel frame with top-tier Suntour components throughout. Frame build date of "J" indicating late 1981 year. Weighs just under 23 lbs as shown. This is a stunning ride and is sure to grab everyone's attention at the club rides. With the restoration, the following new consumables were added.
