Handmade in Italy

In celebration of 70 years of Condor, we built twelve special track bicycles for the Condor Keirin Trophy at the innurgral World Cycling Revival, which took place at Herne Hill Velodrome, the host of the 1948 Olympic cycling events. The limited edition collection of bicycles were used by the world's top Keirin riders during the three day event in June, where stars including track olympians Francois Pervis and Ed Clancy, OBE, and national Keirin champions from around the world, such as Joe Christiansen (USA), William Milkowski (Denmark), and Dominic Suozzi (USA) all used the bicycles to race in the Keirin events.

The colour and details of the frame are a near replica of the original race bikes of Condor's first team, Condor-Mackeson, a team which competed reguarily at Herne Hill Velodrome in the 1950s and 1960s. The handmade frames utilise lightweight, modern super-butted Columbus SLX steel tubing, and are finished with hand-built wheels with the spokes tied and soldered for additional strength under acceleration and are topped with Brooks leather saddle. There are only twelve available in a range of sizes, so be sure not to miss out.

Classico investment cast lugs Classico heat treated steel Classico etched detailing
Etched Investment cast lugs 
Investment casting produces a high quality lug from a wax cast. This laborious process creates a lug that is stronger. The top eyes, bottom bracket, fork feature limited edition etching .
Heat treated steel
Our special edition frame features the original Condor logo from the 1940s and 1950s. We use Columbus SLX super-butted butted tubing which is heat treated for strength. Heat treated metal raises the yield strength for the entire tube, increasing dent and impact resistance. This enables the tube to be made with less material creates a lighter frame.
Individually numbered
Each of our twelve frames are individually numbered and features the logo of the World Cycling Revival the event in which the bicycles were used for the Condor Keirin Trophy
