As I have absolutely no expertise or knowledge when it comes to road frames, I chose the Witcomb over the Harris, but only because I like the general style of the frame and because I really like the wrap over seat stays.

Aesthetics over knowledge... probably not the best basis for a restoration, although..... :wink:

Harris......slap bang in the middle of my racing days and working in a bike shop to pay for it all. Fully sloping crown a killer feature for the frame and of it's time :)

I clicked on Cinelli as it looked the most exotic. Close call over the Witcomb... But, on second thoughts, they both just want building up don't they... why restore? They both look pretty nice.
