Repairs and mods

I do repair work and modifications on any steel frame, lugged, fillet, or TIG, up to and including replacing entire tubes. Customer is responsible for delivering the frame to me, and for return shipping costs, if any.

The prices below are just a sample, every job is unique to some extent. I generally charge $50/hour for shop time – contact me directly (take pictures!) for an estimate.

-Add disc brake mount to frame or fork: $50/mount, $25 extra for seat/chainstay crossbrace, if needed. Please put a disc wheel in your frame before bringing it over or mailing it to verify that the rotor will clear the chainstay!

-Replace/repair chainstay or seatstay: $50-200, depending on the stay and repairs needed.

-Replace toptube/downtube/front triangle: $200-400, depending on the tube and joining method.

-Fill/smooth dents: $25/dent. This is only appropriate in some cases.

-Sandblast/remove old paint: $50-100, depending on the paint (powdercoat is more expensive).

-New powdercoat: $150-200, depending on powdercoat choice, for a one-color job.
