Down tube transfers take various forms with an arrow pierced Hill Special being an early version, followed by Hill Special in a black and red three dimensional script design, then later Hill Special in plain black and white block letters. A few frames had a Adam Hill downtube transfer in three dimensional script.
Some early Padiham made frames had the ‘Hill Brothers’ head and seat post transfers.
Most Padiham made frame the head and seat post transfer takes to form of an elaborate crest based on the Padiham Town Coat of Arms and the motto “Virtutis Fortuna Comes” – “Fortune, the Companion of Valour”.
1980-82 frames made at the Blackpool Works on Charles Street have a central red rose on a white background.
