Mike, What on ever made you think that Harry Quinn didn't make touring frames? All depends on your definition of a touring frame but if you are talking about 72 parallel with MG clearance and a 42" wheelbase most definitely yes, mind you this was a typical 50's/60's road frame as well. He like all other bespoke builders would build what you wanted if you were paying. His and others normally said built to any specification. I have seen quite a few CTC chaps on Harry Quinn's with brazed on Mafac Criteriums and the full touring caboodle. I have had two Harry Quinns the first was what I would call a touring frame built when he was in Rice Lane.

Thats all for now. Keep those wheels spinning, in your memories if not still on the road. Be lucky Mick Butler Huntingdon UK.
