Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone out there out there owns, or knows anyone that owns a Hilton Wrigley bike in any condition they were thinking of selling?

My father had one of these bikes built for himself many years ago, and I would love to be able to buy one for us to renovate together.

My Dad is the one on the left, and the man who wrote this article.

Thanks in advance

Marcus

There are a few residing with members of the Bygone Bykes Club in Yorkshire. One was for sale a year or two back but I know it got sold - to another BBC member.

Interesting little article, was your Dad a member of Morley CC?

I can't remember him telling me the names of the clubs he cycled in. I will have to ask him. I would like him to write a few of his stories down, they would make interesting reading. It's nice to hear the stories from his younger days, even if i've heard them probably a dozen times.

I'll have to keep an eye open on here for a Hilton Wrigley bike, I can't imagine there are too many left around are there? I'd love to find a fixer upper, it would be something I could keep, and maybe one day pass on to my son.
