Check out what Classic’s sales manager, Mike Sickels has been up to.  Yes, this is such a cool place to work that an employee can build a dream bike while still on the clock  😆 .  Mike bought a 1953 Schwinn Phantom on Ebay with a few bucks and a dream.  Several months later, his dream was made a reality with the help of plating manager, Frank Martin who helped Mike restore this beauty.  They completely rebuilt the bike and purchased replacement parts such as new rims and a seat.  The fenders and tank were restored and re-plated with top notch CCI chrome.  The bike was then repainted and pin-striped by a local vendor.  

Feel free to visit our website for a bicycle restoration price list or call Mike – he’s now an expert at this!


– Customer Appreciation Day Oct. 13, 2012

On Saturday, October 13 Classic Components / South Bay Chrome hosted a party to thank our local customers.  We had a live band, taco stand and great people with their favorite rides.  Among those in attendance was Mike from Pro Design Hot Rods with his awesome Mercury as well as a customer who came all the way from Atlanta, GA (thanks, Chip)!

The party featured restored vintage bicycles from the 1930’s as well as a custom Ford Roadster worth over $200,000.  The black chrome of Classic Components was featured on Steve Reed’s gorgeous Suzuki Hayabusa and our show chrome work was evident on Tony Casillas’ Honda Fury.  These were just a few of the folks who were nice enough to stop by on this fun day.  Thank you to our loyal customers!
