Just bought a very nice light blue Hinds track frame for my son with "Kevin Scriven" written on top. I have also got a Hinds road bike from 1967. Lovely frame, very well built. Bought that off a school friend in Ealing back in 1972. Apparently, it had been made for someone who outgrew it, as did my friend (he rowed). Would very much welcome more information on Hinds, Kevin Scriven... I understand that Alec Bird built some of the frames. How do I read the numbers on the BB? Year first? Did the system ever change? The Hinds shop in Ealing used to be on Bond Street. It then became the Ealing Cycle Centre.

Kevin told me that Alec built all his frames.

In the 60s Hinds used to do a lot of special custom work on Moultons, a number of hinds touring conversions still around.
