unclassified designs


Not all Hetchins designs have been positively identified. In the 1960s and 70s, a number of frames were built using industry standard lug blanks. They often bear a resemblance to Italias or Keyholes. However, whereas as Italias were not drilled or cut out, some frames had the same (Prugnat) lug blanks and were drilled or cut out; or, whereas Keyholes were drilled, some frames had the same lug blanks but were not drilled. We do not know what they were called in the shop, if anything at all. A few examples follow below. (One-offs built to customer specs are not included here.)



Left: box-standard Prugnat lugs,
often seen on Track Supreme models.
