    P Oscar Plattner can clearly be seen on the seat tube Detail below When Brotherton retired from his cycle business the frame passed to the Australian Olympian Daryl Perkins who preserved it and later assisted in its restoration I acquired the frame last year still in its 1952 paint which unfortunately was beyond keeping but the colour match was there As a complete bike it had a variety of parts fitted but has been returned to near 1952 specs To complete the restoration I am looking for a pair of Raleigh Record Ace pedals and one of the rare Cinelli adjustable stems which Plattner used Below is an updated 2009 January image of this fine machine now with Cinell adjustable stem and the Reg Harris signature red Airlite hubs Now all it needs are the Raleigh pedals I must thank John Wheatley Peter Brotherton and Peter Underwood for their historical assistance Frame Harris Raleigh No 2842 Seat tube 22 9 16 Top tube 22 7 16 Wheel base 40 Chain stay 16 1 4 73 degree angles Wheels Fiamme sprint rims on Airlite large flanged fixed gear hubs 40 32 spoking fitted with Clement silk tubs Chainset Williams 5 pin with inch pitch block chain Pedals Will be Record Ace when a pair can be traced Gears Fixed 90 Brakes N A Stem Bars Fiamme stem and Cinelli 14 Pista bars Headset Raleigh Record Ace Saddle Brooks B17 Extra details This frame has a unique number not in the RP series of the other Harris Raleigh s why this is I don t yet know possibly it is the first prototype There is evidence of two proto types and a production run of fifteen with RP numbers The actual frame sizes differ in various period and later literature but 2842
