A HAND­SOME HRD

Real Classic - - Letters -

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.
