A brief walk through just about any bike shop or a quick perusal of today's popular auction Web sites reveals that one of the hottest trends among modern bicycle enthusiasts is retro. In addition to the current popularity of new models built to look like classics from times past, many of today's velophiles have taken to restoring relatively inexpensive classics to their former glory. This illustrated, step-by-step guide takes readers through each of the bicycle's mechanical systems, providing detailed and knowledgeable advice for restoring them to working order. In addition, there's also useful information on returning any neglected garage-sale find to its original luster. The advice rendered is applicable to just about any single-speed bicycle from the 1930s to the 1970s, with special emphasis on balloon-tire models of the 1950s and muscle bikes of the 1960s and 1970s.
