Harry Hall vintage bicycle

Harry Hall


The frame builder Harry Hall was an enthusiastic amateur racing cyclist who opened a shop in Manchester in 1957 and started producing custom built frames which were used by many of the top cyclists of the time. Harry gained a reputation as a top cycle mechanic and he and his shop became famous for providing a neutral service vehicle (a mini) at many UK events. Harry was also mechanic to Tom Simpson during the ill-fated 1967 Tour de France. Harry retired from the shop in 1989, started racing again and amongst his victories included the British National & World Age Related Championship. Sadly, Harry died in 2007, but his shop “Harry Hall Cycles” still exists in Manchester and is run by his son Graham.

The bike is good condition with a few scratches as could be expected for its age. It’s topped off with a beautiful red Brooks B17s leather saddle.

This bike is for sale for £275 including delivery.
