Vintage Bicycle blog is an eclectic mix of vintage and classic bicycle related subjects, ranging from French touring bicycles of the 40’s and 50’s, to Victorian machines, preservation and conservation, and cycle history.

It also showcases our bespoke leatherwork, primarily the making of new leather saddle covers for early bicycles.

We are based near London, UK and can be contacted at timd@btinternet.com

I regret that I don’t have enough time to enter into correspondence about identification of bicycles or restoration problems. Sorry!
