The Headbadge: Restoration & Reconditioning Services

For those in the Southern Florida area, The Headbadge offers complete classic cycle refurbishing and renovation services. Lightweight road bikes, middleweights, ballooners, classic folders, and English 3-speeds are all most welcome at The Headbadge.

Our services include reviving dull paint to original luster, brightwork rust removal, teardowns, buildups, period stylizing, replacing damaged decals, and complete mechanical servicing. Full frame repair for steel roadbikes (minus paintwork) can be arranged as well. Our work is soon to be featured in Starz Entertainment's Magic City TV drama, where we served as accuracy advisors and service techicians for their collection of mint, late 1950's Schwinn middleweight bicycles.

All jobs are done to the customer's specifications, and we can source out original and aftermarket replacement parts if necessary.

Please note that we do not offer repainting or touchup services, for we feel that maintaining originality is always paramount.

The Headbadge: Proud to have served as vintage bicycle accuracy advisor and service techician for Starz Entertainment's Magic City TV drama, set in 1959 Miami.
