Hobbs of Barbican built bikes from the early 1930s to 1953. This frame was built in 1945 after the war at the new factory in Dagenham. The two brothers, Albert and Joe Hobbs, built frames that offered real performance for the club man and were marketed as “one of the most advanced frame designs of modern times“.
The special butted forks known as the ‘TF oval fork’ were said to be the “only really resilient racing fork”.
Hobbs were renowned as one of the finest producers of fillet brazed, welded or lugless frames as per this example.
This Hobbs vintage bicycle is topped off with an Brooks leather saddle and quality Mavic rims on large flange Normandy hubs. This classic bike will be appreciated by the discerning rider.
