This from my friend, Jeff Phillips:

"Harry was one of the best of his era, the pink frame I had was one of the team frames that came with the HQ Mercury Team that came to Wisconsin in 1979.  I just sold it a few years ago to someone in California.  He is riding it now, so it isn't collecting dust anyway."

Thanks Charles for bringing this to our attention. Sad news, but then we can't stay here forever....though the happy thing is many of Harry's frames will be around for a long time.

As I come from the North of England [originally] Harry Quinn's were very popular, specially with the Liverpool riders, Kirkby CC in particular, I'd say at one point the best GB road riders at the time [72 ~ 75] were riding Harry Quinn's, usually in red! Great riders such as Doug Daily, Kevin Apter, John Clewarth....and many more.
