At the recent ConcoursVelo event in Basel, two Hetchins were presented, among 80 other fine bicycles. One of the Hetchins won 3d prize Best Paint; both Hetchins tied for 2d prize Crowd Favorite. The link is below:


Gardiner Houlgate Auction rooms in Corsham, near Bath, have an eclectic upcoming sale with a good selection of vintage and more modern bicycles, including Trevor Jarvis, Hetchins, Jack Taylor, Cannondale, Moulton, Brompton, to name a few. The auction is scheduled for 21 May 2020; online bids will be accepted. Please follow the link below for an illustrated online sale catalogue; the bikes are lots 501 to 517. All the Hetchins on offer have been verified genuine from the Hetchins sales ledgers.


The Hetchins weekend, originally planned for July 2020, is off. I guess you all know the reason.

The Carpenter enthusiasts are still planning an event at Herne Hill in August 2020. Those interested in taking part, please contact Peter Bedingfield, V-CC 4471


Stay safe, stay well.
