Classic and Vintage Cycles- what I do
I rebuild and restore historic cycles. Any era… Any make. With a cycle shop based in Hadfield Derbyshire, I supply parts, service and bikes worldwide.
Brian Digby - the man behind Classic and Vintage Cycles
A number of years ago I decided to follow my passion for riding, restoring and building bicycles… Classic and Vintage Cycles began with a wish to build quality bicycles, with an eye for detail.
I’ve been cycling since the 1970s and never lost my love of it, from daily commuting to touring around this amazing countryside of ours.
Serving my production engineering apprenticeship in the machine shop of Seddon Atkinson's, I’ve worked for over 50 years in both cycle and motorcycle workshops. I’ve built maintained, developed, and restored motorbikes and bicycles from all over the world.
With enthusiasm passion and experience I am able to provide a bespoke service that can match the craftsmen of the past.
I can restore, rebuild, repair or upgrade your own bicycle or a bike from stock. I can also bring a mix of classic and modern engineering materials together to upgrade and improve your ride, or create a limited number of “hand-built classics” for racing, weekend use, or simply hanging on the wall to impress guests.
l always have in stock, an ever-changing range of classic cycles and Vintage Campagnolo parts for sale.
