Contributions from other lightweight enthusiasts are welcome, including images of machines or components of particular interest. We are interested in collecting information on UK builders of classic frames, loosely described as frames which could be built to a customer's own specification.
I also aim to keep in stock some basic parts for fixed gear and track riding — chainsets with bottom brackets to match, suitable pedals, bars etc My main stock is lugged or fillet brazed steel frames, tig-welded ones and even aluminium and carbon-fibre frames too if I think they are interesting. Please note I am closed on Wednesdays and Friday; there will also be times when I am away buying stock. I will endeavour to contact within 48 hours of your enquiry. Our Facebook page — Hilary Stone Cycles is used to give previews of new stock and also showcase customer's restorations.
