Drillium - From racing craze to bicycle artwork (Part 2)
Posted: Sunday 16th August 2020
Until we started the pages on Drillium I never realised so many collectors had beautifully restored time-trial machines from the 1970s complete with drilled components, some proprietary others home-drilled.
Starting this second page we have an interesting c.1976 Hetchins Criterium Keyhole submitted by its owner, Flash, the editor/webmaster of the Hetchins website.
Even the humble sprocket wasn’t safe from drill mania as the image above shows:
