In 1973, Tectron Engineering, of which Arthur Needham, a life long cyclist was Managing Director, decided to diversify into the manufacture of custom made cycle frames.

The first tubes were cut, at the Canons Marsh premises in November of that year. The name Argos Racing Cycles was registered in 1974. The first frames were produced after nine months of development, to reach the standard set by Arthur and by 1975, agents were appointed in the USA, and the majority of frames were exported to California and Florida.
