If you are new to wrenching on bicycles checkout my thread about bicycle tools, it's titled Tools for Newbies:

Here's the Link: http://motorbicycling.com/f36/tools-...ons-15395.html




Lately Ive noticed a slight increase in new members joining our fine forum, many with questions about tools needed for a restoration or complete custom build, or maybe just for maintenance of their motorized bicycle(s).

I'd like to suggest again that you don't need a bicycle shop or garage full of every bicycle tool ever invented, to get started wrenching on your bicycle(s).

Here's a Basic Bicycle Tool List:
REGULAR HAND TOOLS

You may already have many of these tools, which are useful around the home/garage. If not, they're widely available in hardware stores, home centers, or LBS.

Small and medium regular screwdrivers
Small and medium Phillips screwdrivers
Combination wrench set including 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17mm wrenches
Regular pliers
Needle-nose pliers
Small and medium Vise-Grip pliers
Plumbers' pliers
Diagonal cutters
6-inch adjustable wrench
12-inch adjustable wrench
Ball-peen hammer
Plastic or rubber mallet
Hacksaw
Course and fine file (flat and half-round)
Metal punches and chisels
Outside/inside caliper
Scratch Awl
Knife

Some of these tools listed above will have you well on your way to working on your bicycle(s)!

One of the great things about bicycles is that they're relatively easy to maintain and repair. In most cases you can solve problems with the kit you carry on your bike, which should include a spare tube, tire levers, all-in-one tool and pump. This allows replacing the tube and handling minor issues, such as fine-tuning parts that loosen or go out of adjustment. As you master simple fixes, you may get interested in doing more involved repairs, such as replacing worn cables, cleaning the drive train, upgrading certain parts or even straightening wheel wobbles. These tasks and more are well within your capabilities if you have the right tools and a little know-how.

For those of you who'd like to by a basic bicycle tool set Park Tool Co, has a nice setup from beginner to advance Too sets for bicycles, here's some info and a Link to Park Tool Home Mechanic Starter Tool Set:

For whatever your needs are in maintenance, restoration, a custom built bicycle whatever the case may be you'll always find someone here in the forum who knows how to do it, what tools are needed, where to purchase them etc etc...

For those of you looking to start welding, try a cheap harbor freight mig welder then if you are finding yourself skilled enough then do some research on various types of welders arc, tig, mig etc etc...
You can purchase a mig welder from harbor freight it's cheap and the quality is pretty much the same you get what you pay for, If you have experience welding and have the resources then I'd suggest a Lincoln mig.

Here's a great website that has almost every bicycle tool ever invented and they are BikeToolsEtc they have 1,000's of bicycle related tools:
