Ted Wojcik Custom Bicycles

Ted Wojcik (pronounced woah-jik) worked on gas turbine engines and helicopter transmission systems during the Vietnam War where he gained extensive engineering and mechanical experience. He worked for several motorcycle specialty shops in New England and became one of the leading motorcycle racers in New England racing on a National level.

He got his start when he met his future wife, Sue Abrahamson, an avid cyclist At 5’2″, she was having a hard time finding a bike that she could ride. Having already learned the art of motorcycle frame fabrication through his racing experience, Ted ordered tubing from a local bike shop to build his wife a bicycle. Already an accomplished welder, Ted decided to try his hand at creating bicycle frames. Built in Ted’s basement, the next frame was sold before it was completed. Ted figured this was a good sign so he made a few more frames, selling them locally. He worked out of his home until 1990 when he set up shop dedicated to producing more frames.

After more than 25 years of designing and manufacturing bicycle frames, Ted is revered as one of the masters of the trade. His bicycles have won medals at USCF championships, NORBA events, Tour Du Pont, the Pan-Am Games, and World Championship Track events.

Today, Ted Wojcik build bikes in New England. He still cuts, welds, brazes; and paints the frames by hand.
