Was please to add this to the 'collection'.

Looks to be around 1989 - 90 era with top routed cabling and a braze on for the front mech pulley.

Pretty good overall condition, no need for repaint. Simple vinyl decals can easily be replaced (but not the head badge)

More Columbus Cromor OR tubing with some fine detailing to make it stand out from other UK built frames - this makes it Columbus frame no. 3, rapidly overtaking my Reynolds 531 obsession.

I have some LX/DX and XT parts available (those Nitto bars are destined for something else) - a bit stuck in the 1" stem department though.

Suggestions on a postcard....

That's lovely! Never saw a Harry Quinn mtb before, a friend of mine has a roadie frame that he sadly turned into a fixie!

I can see myself landing one of these proper old British handmade jobs before too long. Question is though - where do you find them?
