This Bill Nickson racer was handbuilt in 1984 by Bill Nickson Cycles of Leyland, Lancashire of lightweight Reynolds 531c tubing. It is thought that the frame builder was Paul Riley of Preston, who currently builds frames for the world renown Hetchins operation.
The shop was originally started in 1981 by Bill Nickson Snr, an ex-international professional cyclist, with many notable victories in his career, including the overall in the Milk Race (Britain’s most prestigious stage race) and the British National Road Race championships. He also rode, and completed, the Tour de France.
In 2006, the shop was taken over by Bill Jnr, who has also represented Great Britain at Elite level bike racing and has experience over many disciplines of bike riding/racing.
This restored classic British lightweight is made from Reynolds 531c tubing with 531 forks and is finished off with a Brooks leather saddle and Continental Classic L’Eroica limited edition tyres. The bike is offered for sale at £420 including delivery to the UK mainland.
