Lycett Saddles


The company began as Edward Lycett Ltd making bicycle saddles in the latter part of the 1800s. The company had, in 1893, premises at 105 Yardley Road, then the following year a new factory at 161 Adderley Street with offices at 164 Deritend, Birmingham - at the southern edge of the city centre. By 1909 there were additional premises at 'The Saddlery' Bromley Street and Allcock street. Around the late 20s to early 30s a further address at Arthur Street near the Birmingham City football ground was established. A 1902 advert shows the company as Edward Lycett Ltd, then in 1903 as The Lycett Saddle And Motor Accessory Co Ltd and likewise a March 1904 advert, but in a June 1904 advert 'Accessory' has become 'Accessories'

The company was taken over by Brooks in the late 1930s who went on to produce cheaper versions of their Brooks saddles under the Lycett brand.
Fitted to New Imperial and Scott, among others.
