Hetchins – Spyder Italia

  • The Bike – 1973 Hetchins Spyder Italia
  • The Story – Token British bike.  Acquired from Ken Denny.  Ex-Dale Brown collection.  Beautiful original paint and graphics.  When I got the bike, it had the wrong CPSC brake holders but only in the rear as well as a couple of other minor irregularities.  It just goes to show that things do get by even these two best known collectors. LOL.
  • The Cool Factor – I am intrigued by the fancy lugs that are so common in British bikes.  This one has just enough without being too ornate (read: gaudy)!
