A Visit to Hoffy Cycles

On 22, Dec 2014 | No Comments | In Lovely Bikes | By Gavin Bannerman

I visited Hoffy Cycles today with a few people on special business. John Harman, the long-term mechanic there has a lovely road bike that was made for him by Eric Hendren, a previous owner of Hoffy Cycles. John told the story that he wanted Eric to make him a frame in the famous Bianchi celeste green. Eric mixed some colours together and got this blue as a result. It’s not celeste, but it’s nice.

There’s also a little Hoffy on the wall. John put it together with a mix of tubesets and parts. If you look carefully you can see the missing links in the chain to prevent a circus performer making off with it.
