Welcome to Hilarystone.com

Hilarystone.com is devoted to older classic and vintage race, road, track, lo-pro, time trial and touring bikes, frames and parts to fit.

I also aim to keep in stock some basic parts for fixed gear and track riding – chainsets with bottom brackets to match, suitable pedals, bars etc

My main stock is lugged or fillet brazed steel frames, tig-welded ones and even aluminium and carbon-fibre frames too if I think they are interesting. And from most periods – as far back as the early 20th century though most of what I sell will be from the 1950s through to the 1980s.

Please note I am not in every day of the week; there will be times when I am away buying stock. I will endeavour to contact within 48 hours of your enquiry.

FOR HOW TO BUY PLEASE click on the Contact page (and read it!) which explains how our business is run, payment methods, shipping and importantly our conditions of sale. Please note items returned under the Distance Selling Regulations which are not faulty or damaged will be subject to a 15% restocking fee.

All enquires are welcome to:

Please include the following information in your enquiry:
Your name...
Item details (full title of item, including number if stated)...
The address to which to post to...
Prefered payment method...

I will then send you an invoice with all the details you need in order to make a payment and complete the sale. I CANNOT take credit or debit cards directly.

ONE FINAL POINT – once I have sent the invoice, the order is only valid for 24 hours unless it is paid or clear arrangements have been agreed. I have had several cases recently where somebody has ordered an item, and paid a week or so later expecting it to be still available.

Most pages list shipping charges on the top right-hand side…

If you're looking for something specific don't forget the search button at the top left hand of every page…

PLEASE NOTE that I can only value bicycles, frames or parts if photos are sent by email; there is a charge of £12. I can also research bikes and their makers – there is a minimum charge of £20 for this.

I am always keen to buy new stock – bicycles, frames or parts of the type on this website ie older classic racing and lightweight but NOT roadsters, shoppers or carrier bikes. Please contact me via email in the first instance.
