Hart Cycles Logo

Hart’s Cyclery is now building bicycles - made in Scotland from Reynolds. Frames are available in a traditional lugged style and can be painted in any colour desired or if it's stainless it can be polished too. With Hart's Cyclery's extensive suppliers, it is also possible to build a complete bike to any specification imaginable. If you're interested in having a build, then get in touch with Graeme here or call!

Who's building? Graeme's dad, Leonard, a long-time engineer and former Rolls-Royce apprentice, is the man with the brazing torch. Graeme realised that his dad had the skills and he had the ideas - so why not combine the two?! Graeme will also be serving a long-term apprenticeship in building, all the while making sure that customers' exact needs are catered for.
