Re-homed bikes

Some of the bikes at Sydney Mountain Bike Rescue are too small or too big for me, or they hang around awaiting attention while I’m restoring something else. These bikes are often re-homed by other kind souls who love grazing their knuckles as much as I do.

The bikes below were either restored and re-homed by myself, or were re-homed as project bikes for restoration by their new owners. Hopefully, they’re each enjoying a new lease of life cruising the suburbs, beaches, and National Parks, of Australia, and beyond.

  1. I love this! I am totally amazed by what you are doing. I have been searching the internet for a very specific bike and now that i have discovered this my mindset has completely changed. Please contact me.


  2. I love what you’re doing and have always wondered why people don’t care for classic mtn bikes like they do cars. My friends and I still have our old Rockies, Diamondbacks & GTs in nearly flawless orig. condition. I’m always on the lookout for one or two other specific bikes I missed out on back around 93. Perhaps I could even pay you a commission to find one. 😉


    • Cool, happy to hear your older bikes are still being ridden. I reckon you’ll have a wider choice of retro bikes than I do. Decent bikes, such as those you mentioned, are pretty thin on the ground out here.
