This part takes muscle and lots of leverage when rusty parts don't want to give.
Yes, it's dusty messy work, but we do it because we are committed to making your bicycle dream come true.
It gets exciting when we get this close to completion!

You've decided to get the wheels rolling on your project, congratulations! We have refinished hundreds of bikes from across the country and on occasion even internationally. We are eager start working with you.
If you've decided on the color, the process is fairly simple. Color selection is usually your most difficult decision. Listed here are the basic steps you need to create the bike that will be uniquely you!
A basic single-color frame and fork typically runs $150 for media blasing and powder coating. Check our pricing for more details!
Please send us an email with photos of your bicycle. Include as many details about your goals as possible to help us with your estimate.
For projects less straightforward, a phone follow-up may be desirable. We want you to be comfortable with your decisions. After you get in touch with us, and we have a good idea of the project's scope, we will furnish you with a price estimate.
Visit our recommended suppliers to choose a powder coat color. When in doubt, many of our suppliers provide or sell color swatches. Please email us with ANY questions about the powder you chose, before you order. Some powders may not be suitable for bicycle application or have special requirements. We have many perfect quality remnants, please check our inventory.
When you are ready, purchase 1 pound of powder, per color, for a standard frame and fork. Have it shipped directly to our location. Use your last name as the PO# for the order.
If you are shipping your bike, strip your bike down or have your local bike shop do so. Ship us only the parts to be coated, if possible. (We routinely remove headsets and bottom brackets, no charge.) Pack in the smallest box possible. Ship with UPS or FedEx (USPS is 3 times as expensive). If you need a box, contact your local bike shop, they may give you one for free. Shipping a standard frame and fork generally runs $35.00 - $45.00 depending on location.

If you'd like to drop off your bicycle at our Topeka location, please arrange an appointment with us in advance. We also have a good working relationship with Bike America in Overland Park for pick up and drop off.
Once we receive your bike and have the powder coat material, we will begin your project as soon as it reaches the top of our work list. Work is typically completed in the order received. After we have completed your bicycle, we will pack it securely for return shipping.
It usually takes about 3 weeks to process a bike. We will send you an email containing an invoice, letting you know your beautiful bike is complete and ready to come home.
If you dropped off your bike with us locally you can swing by, make payment, ogle over your frame, and spread the word about Groody Bros. Bicycle Restoration!
Now that we are in Topeka, we routinely pick up and drop off bicycles in the KC area. Please make arrangements with us, if this will assist you.
If you shipped us your bike, we send you a PayPal invoice for payment, or you may provide a credit card number. We prefer PayPal since the credit cards charge a larger fee. Once we receive payment, we will ship the bike to you and send you a tracking number.
Current backlog has us 3 to 4 months out on full restorations, 6 to 8 weeks on the smaller projects. We'll gladly add you to the queue if you are willing to wait. Thanks for your patience.
