1904 Advertised several innovations on their cycles

1904 'All cyclists, and especially intending purchasers, will have good look the range of cycles shown by the Hart Cycle and Vehicle Company, of Barton-on-Humber, at their stand in the gunroom. One feature noticeable the splendid adjustment of the parts, which means a great deal in the running of a machine. Mr Hart has been in the trade all his life, and the holder of gold medal for the high-class finish, quality, and cheapness of cycles he exhibited in Tasmania. He has introduced several innovations, and has others ready to be placed on the market. The works have only recently been installed at Barton, one of the aims of the company being to be in a position to increase their exports to the Colonies and other countries. Some of the cycles are a marvel of cheapness, and it will be noted that these prices have not been rendered possible by the fitting of cheap class of tyre, a point every cyclist should consider. The Hart-Grande is a machine worth examining. It is priced £9 17s 6d, and, if desired, two speed gear can be affixed at extra charge. The Hart-Majestic is nicely designed machine for a lady, and built to ensure a graceful position in riding. A Hart cycle can be purchased at £7 15s.'[1]
