Yesterday me and a buddy had a drive over the hills, to Hyde, to visit the cool bit of craziness that is Relics 'N' Rust.
I've seen this place pop up on the web a hundred times and always fancied a visit. I've gotta warn you though - pics don't describe this place at all.
This place is crazy!
Crazy in the way that you could spend three hours in there and still not see everything that they have to offer!
It starts off outside where there's usually a couple of cool cars and bikes on show - one of which was the awesome Sailor Jerry themed rat rod that I drooled over a few weeks ago at the Route 62 Kustom Show. Once inside it's kind of like the Tour de France collided with an auto jumble inside a vintage clothing store that had been converted into a garage full of antiques. With a barber shop and tattoo parlour thrown on top.
The place is awesome!
The cycle side is the Bike Shack. They specialize in spares, repairs and servicing of just about anything with pedals and a chain. There's plenty for sale inside too.
The barber shop is El Pedro's Barber Shop. A very unique corner of the store where you can chill out, grab a drink, and get a cut and a shave. They sell a range of hair products in there too.
The Tattoo side is Dee Tattooz. Unfortunately she was closed during our visit, but to see some of her cool work, check out her facebook page HERE.
The store also homes Kustom Kraft Leatherwork, keeping things Ol' Skool and making everything from hand tooled accessories to custom chopper seats.
The place is well worth a visit. We'll deffo be giving it a return - probably as soon as the in-house bar is finished...
For more info on the place, check them out HERE. Or their facebook page HERE.
