Swansea Cycles

 

This is a good exhibition for bike-friendly Freo. On in the Woolstores shopping centre this weekend, so go and have a look and if you happen to have a Swansea bicycle bring it along!

Working from their backyard in Mosman Park, the Baldwin brothers launched Swansea Cycles in 1927.

Success meant a move to Fremantle where over the next 40 years Swansea became one of Australia’s largest bike makers. They provided basic transport and the means to sporting success for many.

Swansea owners are invited to bring their bikes back home to Freo.  Have your Swansea dated and added to our register by a club expert and take away a commemorative registration tag.
