  • Condor Italia 1973

    , ,

    Beautiful mid 1970s Condor. Parallel 73 degree head and seat tubes and small-offset forks (40mm) make this a nimble, agile race machine. Fantastic period colourway with chrome lugs. Nuovo Record group, including headset, seatpost and pedals and hubs, with Universal braking kit and Cinelli bars and stem.

  • Hetchins Vede Mecum

    , ,

    By Hetchins’ standards, this is a relatively understated example. The workmanship and finishing, however, is second to none – and the deeper and longer one looks, the more it becomes clear that the choices made in the design of this Vede Mecum I were not dictated by budget, but by an ostentatious taste.
    The build sacrifices neither form nor function to the other – staying true to the aesthetic and spirit of the original machine. A composite of continental parts: Italian gears (Campagnolo) and brakes (Universal), French crankset (Durax) and Bottom Bracket (TA), Belgian cockpit (Titan) and British saddle (Wrights). As handsome as they come.

  • Mac Lean

    , ,

    Formerly of Upper Street, Islington, MacLean retain an ability to make the most hardened of London lightweight-watchers go all goey-eyed. This 50s example is true to the rule. Superb detailing, pencil stays, original paint and varnish transfers. Set up fixed, but on a flip-flop hub with a 5 speed freewheel if you wanted to run it geared down the line.
