I bought this bicycle from my friend Robert because Ihttps://onlinebicyclemuseum.co.uk/1962-h-r-morris-lightweight-frame-no-h361/ like its provenance. Robert has owned it since 2006, buying it from Alexander von Tutschek, who is the marque specialist for these bicycles. In one of the photos you can see Alexander buying it from Mr Morris in 2005.

When it was built in 1962 it was to a customer’s specific requirements. I believe Mr Morris bought it back from his customer in the 1980s, resprayed it, and used it as his personal machine for twenty years before selling it in 2005.

Among aficionados ‘Dick’ Morris is considered the best of the lightweight frame builders, and all his machines were built with great attention to detail. For example Robert pointed out to me the light alloy nut on the headset which is a Morris signature item. I’ve ridden H361 and it rides superbly.
