Hetchins For Sale
Used, NOS

"... such stuff as
dreams are made on."

Hetchins owners wishing to sell their bikes or frames may place ads (incl. fotos and/or links to other web sites) here free of charge. Private offers only. Please supply frame number with description.

Sellers, please be guided by the grading system below. The grading system is borrowed from the classic car scene and is designed merely as a guide to help sellers and prospective buyers agree on the objective condition of a bicycle/frame, as a preliminary to negotiations. No prices are implied by objective condition alone; it is entirely up to sellers and prospective buyers to weigh additional factors (such as rarity, location, sentimental value, illustrious pre-ownership, show bike, bike with race history, original-owner documentation, etc.) in the establishment of a price.

Buyers, be advised that the Editor cannot certify the accuracy of any information given. All deals are the sole responsibility of the buyers and sellers. The Editor can offer assistance in identifying model types and production years.

Click here for pricing guidelines. Be advised that prices at ebay tend to be inflated, sometimes wildly so, and do not bear comparison with prices here.

To thwart spam engines, sellers eddresses are camouflaged; sample: yourname_AT_domain.com instead of yourname@domain.com. Those wishing to contact the seller must copy-paste the camouflaged eddress to the email program TO: window and manually replace the _AT_ by @. See example below:

(For those flummoxed by this, contact the Editor)

Fraud warning. Buyers and sellers beware: fraudulent offers of payment are circulating for high-budget items on the Internet. A 'buyer' may tell you a story involving his own shipping company and a cashier's cheque which he proposes to send to you, the seller; the cheque is for more than the amount of the sale, you are instructed to cash the cheque, keep the amount of the sale, and send the balance to the 'buyer'. Before accepting any such offer, see the following links.
Fraudulent offers of bikes for sale are also circulating--either the bikes are not genuine Hetchins, or the bikes are genuine but the sellers are not in possession of the items on offer. See the links below.

2. Sample bogus offers [made to this web site]
3. Sample bogus offers [ebay & craigslist]
4. Sample bogus offers, 1947 Super Special ASC [craigslist]

To thwart fraudulent resellers, images of bikes and frames offered for sale here are watermarked.
