Custom Built Bikes

Our Custom Bike Programme

Red Kite Cycles is a specialist local bike shop with widely recognised skills in designing and building custom bikes from the frame upwards. Yes we sell some of the industry’s absolute best off-the-peg bikes, but this area of the website is dedicated to our efforts to innovate and capture our customers’ individuality.

Through this gallery you will see a mix of new custom designed and built bikes by us, but also there are occasional restoration projects of bikes from the illustrious past of our sport. To accompany those older classics we occasionally add gallery photos of a special bike that visits the shop for service or just “show and tell”, where the owner wants to share their bike with us and trade knowledge and ideas about projects.

So, scroll through the gallery menu to follow your dreams and those of our customers. Some of these bikes are truly beautiful – road, mountain and hybrid wonders, all of them are properly rideable.

How can I build my own custom project with Red Kite?

We will happily take you on your own custom journey. To begin the process just get in touch.

Red Kite Cycles has unparalleled knowledge and experience in the custom field. You will find that our over-arching aim is to make you as happy on your bike as we are on ours … and that’s quite a target because we are all so happy on our bikes that we work in a bike shop!
