Bob Jackson bike

Bob Jackson


This quality frame was lovingly hand crafted between 1977 and 1982 and has been resprayed in recent years by the revered Bob Jackson Cycles of Leeds.

This British bicycle manufacturer was established in 1935 by Bob Jackson with money lent from his mother – until 1986, when the Hetchins brand bought the company. Sadly Bob died in 1999, having helped revive the company, but with Donald Thomas still at the helm the business is stronger than it has ever been.

This Reynolds 531 classy steel bicycle is equipped with Campagnolo shifting,  a good range of easy to use gears, wide bars and quality wheels making this an ideal ride for the gravel roads of Eroica.
