Hetchins owners were understandably proud of their bikes and often had themselves photographed with their bikes. This page offers some samples. All photographs courtesy of the original owners or their families.
Below: three lads on fixies. Alan Johnson fills in the picture for us: It was taken in 1962 August or September, Brian [Johnson] and Lyn Morris (one of the other riders, on the left in the photo below) from Corby Northamptonshire rode to Cardiff and back across the Brecon Beacons on fixed wheels to Lyn's home town, Cardiff. I believe the picture was taken in Cardiff. While they were there, Lyn raced on the old track in Cardiff (Maindy Stadium) and they both met Don Skeen, the top Welsh Champion. I believe they stayed in youth hostels along the route. Great days to be cycling on the open road. --Alan & Brian Johnson
