This 1960s Reg Harris has been well refinished in metallic blue and is a rarely seen frame from a charismatic rider and businessman. Reg Harris had a great deal of success as a rider throughout the 1950s, and was a household name well before the likes of Team Sky made bike racing a big deal. After his riding career was cut short Reg decided that he would have a go at running his own bike company, and though his profile opened doors and attracted customers the business was short-lived. This frame was built for 27" wheels and has plenty of clearance for mudguards as well, it will no doubt build into a very pretty period road bike.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this frame is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
