A HANDSOME HRD
Really enjoying the RC mag and of special interest this month was the article ‘ Twin Peaks’ by John Waltham. John’s article mentions Harry Cox of Exeter and his HRD Series A twin. Our connection is that we bought our Series A Comet from Harry Cox’s brother’s daughter. Harry’s brother was, we think, Frederick Alan; also known locally as Tom. The bike was laid up in 1956 and we bought it in 2009, when we gave it a mechanical and electrical overhaul but left the original patina. The Comet is ridden regularly and has made many trips around the UK and to France.
