  • HR Morris bicycle 1949
    given the opportunity of buying this directly from Dick Morris Even then I realised that this was a once in a lifetime offer Fantastic hand cut headbadge designed and cut by HRM The features that make it special If you accept that the London fashion for fancy lugwork which started before World War Two peaked in the late 40 s early 1950 s then this unique cycle is at the very pinacle of this type of workmanship There are ten cut outs in each head lug and sixteen cut outs in the bottom bracket Nothing else from the period comes close to this The workmanship is flawless go around this frame with a magnifying glass it really is quite exceptional One point to remember is that when this frame was new it was at the forefront of style unlike later fancy lugged frames from the 1960 s onwards which are really in this writer s opinion retro frames Of note on the frame are the modified alloy head clip left and Constrictor see the snake alloy lamp bracket Note also the splendid matching Morris made sloping stem which has been on this machine since new What can I say about the head badge above right The frame is built up with the following period equipment of note Harden Flyweight hubs these are double fixed and have cup and cone bearings I think this type of Harden hub is probably the most attractive to be seen up to this period The earlier Flyweight hubs have a single curvature in the centre but this particular version has the double curvature very much like the later Campag Record alloy hub These are matched to San Giorgio sprint sew up racing rims Chainset is a Stronglight 49D slightly modified Note the extra chamfering the

  • HR Morris Special Model
    is the very elaborate lugwork in which his initials are cut into every lug the whole frame is covered in M s and HRM s These lugs are a labour of love Dick told me that they took a two full weeks to file the lugs prior to making the frame It should be clearly noted that these fancy lugs are all cut from the blank lug by hand and that nothing has been added the object was to remove metal and not to add This machine was ordered new by Ray Bennnis in October 1963 and still has its original finish period equipment Anything else H R Morris or Dick Morris as was known built many frames whilst employed by others long before he started making frames under his own name in late 1950 s From then onwards he made about 450 H R Morris frames All of these are well crafted all were made by the master himself but very few were exceptional I have now spent fifteen years looking out for outstanding examples of his workmanship but now doubt that he made more than twenty very fine frames and maybe as low as fifteen What I am
