History

10.24.2017

     "When Børge Saxil Nielsen opened his shop in 1952, it was on the opposite side of Henrik Ibsensvej, in relation to where the store is located today. A racing and track machine was built at Saxil Cykler and these were "tailored" to professional and amateur riders. The bikes built at the workshop were of very high quality and Saxil got a good reputation, like a solid frame and bicycle builder. This led to the fact that a Saxil baneracer was used in the cycling film "Six-Day Run" from 1959."
     "The hand-made frame from Saxil was also used by riders for larger races. Among other things, the great Danish rider Leif Mortensen won the World Cup for amateurs in 1969, on a Saxilracer. In this way, the World Championship stripes became part of Saxil's logo."
