We just finished restoring this beautiful bicycle. It was found as just the frame and fork painted in an awful white and red with low quality house paint. It was purchased in England and sent to Argos Racing Cycles in Bristol UK for a full repaint and fresh Decals.
The decals selected for the restoration were a limited edition graphic Hetchins used in the 50s known as "coronation decals". They are very fancy with lots of great detail. Check out the detail of these lugs!
These bikes are known for their distinct "curly stays"
We built it up with time period original components including Stronglight cranks, Campagnolo Grand Sport derailleur, GB Brake levers and calipers, and Reynolds Seat pin, lugged stem, and bars.
And of course a bike this fancy needs a fancy bar wrap
Come by the shop and see it for yourself!
