Alan E. Negus

 "Pale blue 531 with Nervex professional lugs....It had no 531 badge, and the makers name 'HARRY J QUINN' was hand painted on the down tube (in the hope that that would make it go faster than the 'cursive' style writing commonly used. Note that the Q was not a real Q - it was made with a 0 and a screwdriver. One 'special' feature: the rear hanger for the Mafac brake was made from part of 'butchers hook, obtained from the shop next door, and a cable stop of the sort normally brazed to a top tube. As Harry said 'you can't pull with a force equal to the weight of a bull or cow.' "


Built for me in 1962 at the Harry and J Quinn shop at 498 Rice Lane.
