Hi all - first time poster here despite being a lurker for years!
I'm mid restoration on a Harry Hall. Does anyone know of any timeline on the frame numbers. It seems to be a bit of a hidden secret with his frames. I've trawled thru a load of the sites and am aware of the usual info - i.e. Different good frame builders , good quality but little info and the shop aren't interested any more.
I have matching frame/fork numbers of 1328. It's a nice straight , clean 25" 531 frame with campy dropouts. Just by looking at it I can date it to mid 1980's but I'd love to find any detailed info if it exists e.g. Name of builder (eternal optimist!) and as exact date as poss of the build.
Cheers!

Bit of an obvious question but have you contacted Harry Hall Cycles to see what they can come up with?

Unfortunately, the shop doesn't seem to have records any longer...

Thanks for your replies. I'd not bothered with the shop given the feedback I had from elsewhere - lack of interest from the present team and seemingly no records.
I hoped someone in retrobikeworld might have some nuggets of information tucked away.
Seems a pity that the records haven't come to light yet. It'd be great to put a name to the builder. The frame and fork are pantographed HH and should turn out great. I'll post pics of the build a bit further down the line - it's off to the paintshop shortly.

I'm having the HH done to a personal spec and a Raleigh SBDU track to an original finish

If you haven't checked out Ooey , def worth a google or looking at the Facebook page to see the gallery of past jobs!!
It's not a plug - I'm just a normal customer.
I'll post pics when I get them back - a 6-8 week turnaround at the mo

Getting back to work on the Harry Hall

File comment: Look away purists - done to my personal spec with a nod to Mercian. No original paint - just a dodgy old respray when I picked her up.

Nice looking paint job.. like the King of Mercia paint jobs.. unique color so should be nice with a period gruppo installed.
