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.


Our Facebook page – Hilary Stone Cycle is used to give previews of new stock and also showcase customer's restorations. And anything interesting we spot on Classic bikes and their parts…

You can find us on Facebook at:


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.

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.

Other notable frames include a beautiful Merlin Super Chromolite, Mercian King of Mercia Race, Elio built by Giuseppe Pela, Bernard Carré, Paris Tour de France, Dave Yates 753, 25in Mike Kowal amongst others…

6th July Added in about15 fresh pairs of wheels plus a few singles. There are some lovely sets including red large flange Airlitetrack hubs on MA2 clincjer rims, 26in track hubed wheels and loads more…

11th July Added a beautiful 1930s/40s F W Evans tourer to the bikes page – its worth taking a look to see how a bike with some patina can look truly beautiful… Also made a few small updates to the Spare parts pages…

14th July Updated the 5spd freewheel pages with over 30 new freewheels today. 6spd and 7//8spd freewheels will be updated shortly.

15th July 6spd freewheels page has been updated – includes a couple of Campagnolo freewheels, some rare wide ratio early type Dura-Ace and good selection of Regina. And now the 7and 8spd freewheels – more Dura-Ace and an exceptionally rare NOS Moulton AM Regina freewheel.

27th July Updated the Cinelli handlebars page today with a very good selection of Cinelli bars.

31st July Just added a lovely early 53cm Colnago Super to the smaller Italian frames page. Its from the era when the Supers still were largely finished by hand and were built in relatively small numbers. Its an ideal restoration candidate – very sound but needing painting. These frames are ideal for a beginner to retro bicycles being very straightforward to build up and with easy parts availability – we can supply most parts needed… Or get it painted and build it up for a customer.
