Welcome to Hilarystone.com
Hilarystone.com is devoted to older classic and vintage race, road, track and touring bikes, frames and parts to fit. There will be some retro MTB parts, frames and even the occasional bike too…
I have recently moved and now almost all the stock is in Wales and mostly sorted and racked – this means that I can check far easier for items not listed on the site – I am over in Wales full time now… But 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 with 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.
All enquires are welcome to:
Please include the following information in your enquiry:
I will then send you an invoice with all the details you need in order to make a payment and complete the sale. Please note I CANNOT take credit or debit cards directly.
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.
