    Harry Hall back in one piece

    Although I still have to fit a back brake cable and handlebar tape ,I rode it up the road this afternoon ( in the rain )then spent ages getting the gunge off it ( the roads here in Scotland are very heavily salted in winter ). Feels very spindly but quick ,certainly after riding my Giant mtb.HH.jpg

    I ride MTB downhill bikes as well as road and marvel at the differences. I am looking forward to more pics of this Harry Hall.

    Vintage ------ Could be mid 70's (126 drop out's )to mid eighties,probably restored late eighties,when Shimano bits were added ( brakes and rear deralieur ) the crank is strong light ,front levers simplex,hubs campagnolo,rims were changed to mavic probably when restored for the first time. Seat post is compag,saddle is ideal,handlebars are cinnelli, levers exage.
    Rode 20 miles yesterday apart from the hills ( no matter how light the bike ,still got to pedal ) it was fairly effortless,I'm delighted with it. HH 001.jpgIt now hangs in pride of place in the toy shedHH 003.jpg

    If your asking where HH got the frames made back in the 70/80's ,no idea,I suspect the forks were fitted when the bike was renovated for the first time late 80's early 90's. HH retired from the shop to concentrate on racing,something he achieved considerable success in,he died in 2007 aged 78. The existing shop doesn't seem to have any records of build dates ,nor does it sell HH bikes anymore,couldn't even got HH stickers from them.
    They don't seem to be interested in their founders handbuilt bikes.
    BTW my frame no is 608, can anybody trace that ?
    cheers

    its only a double,the 52 outer is a replacement,a pity because it doesnt match the 42 inner drilled original, but at least it has good teeth. I found the replacement at SJS cycles,shop soiled for £5 ,after being told by many shops that they were obsolete,and not available with an 86 pcd.
