Peter & Charles,

The only difficulty is getting ahold of Nick. He's not easy to find, rarely answers emails, atleast when I and others on the list have tried to reach him. From a source in the UK, I heard whether true or not, that this is just a part time gig for Nick. His website is difficult to navigate as the trabsfer are just desribed in print with no pictures, so unless you reach him directly it's hard to know what the list describes.

I've been lucky to reach Nick by phone few times and have gotten some very nice transfers, but one transfer he did send was incorrect, and one never produced by Hetchins. Len Ingram, Flash, Tom Rawson and I did a project years ago to identify all transfer ever made by Hetchins, and we came up with about 40-45 in all from the beginnings of Hetchins up until now. That does not include the transfers on my Trio and another frame I have. Until we saw those no one even knew that existed. For some reason, I own the two only frames with those transfers that we know of. Guess I'm just lucky.

My point is when dealing with Nick, is to know exactly what your getting. He is an honest good fellow in all. His website just needs some work.

DECALS2000. We've been selling bike transfers and decals for 25

years and are the biggest, bar none. The store is small but will grow.

Artwork and product are second to none with guidance on application

included in shipment. ALL major UK refinishers use these products, so

why don't YOU??

This is the Ebay shop of Nick Tithecott of Lloyds Cycles, developing another outlet for his transfers.
