  • Manufacturer: Hetchins
  • Size: 56 cm
  • Description:
    Hetchins bikes are amongst the most wanted classic lightweights out there. Partly because of their distinctive frame designs often with opulent ornamental lugwork and curly rear stays, partly also due to their excellent riding characteristics.
    In the 1920s Hyman Hetchin, a Russian jew who fled to England after the Revolution of 1917, founded a shop in London where he also sold bikes. When he met framebuilder Jack Denny who had experimented with an innovative design involving curved stays, he saw the potential of his work. Both teamed up and patented the design in 1934. The partnership soon brought rewards in the form of Olympic and World's Championship victories in 1936 and sales increased until WW2.
    Apart from the patented curly (or "vibrant") stays, Hetchins frames were (and still are) known for ornate, and often hand-cut, lugwork.
    Our Hetchins frame here is the model Super Special with distinctive reshaped Chater Lea lugs. The Headlugs have a bell shape to allow the installment of an 'integrated' headset. Here we can find an additional and traditional clamp as part of the headset. Headtube and bottom bracket shell have oiler holes.
    The frameset includes the original fork with a beautiful double crown which, together with the famous vibrant rear triangle forms an elegant British leightweight classic.
