What you’ll find on our site…


First of all welcome to Vintage Lightweights

Read our blog and avoid buying some piece of mass produced rubbish and learn how to spot a quality bike frame of any make.

Skipton, Craven and the Yorkshire Dales

1950s Ellis Briggs Track Frame

Being on the edge of the Dales we are keen to hear from any other vintage bike enthusiasts from the area, with any stories or pictures.  And we are keen to help out with advice to any would be restorers.

Our Focus

Its our main objective to help you restore your classic road bike of any make, but our main focus is on the small shop framebuilders who are often overlooked.  Its these frames that often offer the best in terms of workmanship and value for money.

Every town once had its local framebuilders, but of course most have all but disappeared now.
