Complete restoration of a 1938 Elgin Cruiser

Here at Lakeshore Bicycle and Fitness, we not only sell and service bicycles and fitness equipment, we also restore them.  The following pictorial is one such restoration.  The bike is a 1938 Elgin, being professionally restored by our service manager, Steve Niblick.  The bike was stripped down and all the parts were sent out for bead blasting and powder coating at Powdertech Plus.  All of the chrome parts where shined to a mirror finish and some nice little additions were installed on the saddle and handlebars.

Luxuriously appointed with Ostrich hide for the saddle.

The handlebar tassels are Ostrich hide also.
