Since the days of 2013, Whippet has been known for our vintage steel bicycle knowledge and know-how.
We originally set up shop in downtown Joburg with a plan to get the city riding fixed gear. However our scope rapidly expanded when we hit cycling gold, discovery the long lost Sancini stash. (For those of you not in the know, the Sancini Factory was a large player in the golden era of South African frame building.) After we got our hands on around 350 NOS and used frames, we created custom builds of every order - from classic period bicycles to sleek single speeds, urban racing rats, practically cool commuters and everything in between.
Now it's time for a new chapter
Rather than being constrained by one local store, we've now decided to move our supplies and bikes online, increasing accessibility for both our vintage and modern components in South Africa. We'll even throw in free shipping to sweeten the deal (T&Cs apply). For those of you that want a sweet Whippet build, don't fear as we're still in that game. Just drop us an email or WhatsApp and we'll take it from there.
We've also got some exciting new projects in the pipeline, but they are still in the hush hush stage. Stay tuned for more details.
