11 check chain ring alignment
12 check crank bolts or nuts.
13 check sprocket ware.
14 check derailleur sprocket ware.
15 align derailleur to frame chain line.
16 pull seat post re-grease
17 clean off dirt that may harm mechanical parts.
18 wax chrome from rusting
19. fill oil on sturmy-archer 3speed.
20 cable adjust Sturmy-Archer 3speed.
21 clean off chain re-oil
22 check the dish on front and rear wheels
23 re-bend brake springs on certain bikes. some factory made mass produced wheels may be way out of dish they don't care. if you have a bent rim then bring it to me I will re-bend for 20 dollars plus 5 dollar to mount tire. bad bend 25 dollars serious multiple bends and radius problems 30 dollars. to to fix badly bent rims I have to take all the spokes out and reshape the rim with in 7 degrees. then reshape the radius. then re lace the spokes and then do a extensive truing and dish the wheel. I am the only one I know that does this. The reason I do this is because I restore bikes and some parts are hard to find. as long as the rim hasn't been creased then it can be re-worked. I can usually get them with in 2 millimeters. Hope this helps you good day
