Bicycle Thieves Outa' be

Do not buy this bike

PA bike

Because too many bikes are being stolen by Hbg thieves - Please bring lock & cable/ chain with you if you plan on building a bike

If you need a bike - come help build your own - wear old clothes - you will learn as you go - kids must have parent - "Bring your old bike - even if it is in pieces" - that's why we are called Recycle Bicycle

We are a focal point for Recycling Bicycles in Central Pennsylvania - what really happens is people throw them in the yard & then run like mad. The lady of the house then yells “some-body leaving bikes in the yard” and that’s my signal to hurry out & hide them to keep her happy!

 Most bikes are fixed and returned to the community.!!

 Eventually some bikes are so bad that they are stripped for parts and the scrap metal recycled to enhance the environment.

 The parts are stored in a sort of Mobile Repair Facility; it’s a lawn care trailer enclosed with 8’ plywood which looks like a hill-billy outhouse on wheels. Plus the trailer was just rebuilt by Quality Bicycle Parts. The MRF then is towed around the area all summer, to facilitate Free Bike Repair for Kids. That’s the part we really like to do!       

Plus - we now have an operating Bike Warehouse at 821 Elder Street in Harrisburg from 12 noon to 3:30 pm on Mondays and 5 pm to 8 pm or later on Tuesdays  -  Saturdays are out on the street in the summer but in December we repair bikes for Christmas on Saturdays from 8 am to 12 noon
