There is a shop in North Carolina, Renaissance Bicycles,
who take older, vintage frames, add modern components, and create worthy masterpieces. To some degree, this is what we do at the CRC Cykel Garage. We don't repaint/refinish frames, but we create unique, one-of-a-kind rides from sweet steel road bikes. In the que at the moment we have a very nice Panasonic DX6000. I've gone back and forth on whether or not I want to turn it into a single speed, but at this point I'm leaning toward returning the SunTour Sprint kit to it. Pictures will be posted as the project is completed.
