Ward Family Race Action

Harry Quinn Track

Chrome Harry Quinn

Red Harry Quinn

Leicester Track

A big thank you to Paddy & Eileen Ward for sending in these fabulous action shots adding the following information:-
"We thought you might be interested in seeing some old photos of us on Harry Quinn bikes.
The white Harry Quinn was made for me as a favour in a week -(built and sprayed) by Harry.   If I recall it was for a track championship which was in 1970.  The picture shown was in a time trial in 1972.  Somewhere in the loft I may still have the receipt which I think was £17.
The next Chrome road bike was taken in 1975. Notice the drilled out chainring and brake levers.
The red road bike was also taken in the 70's on the Coast Road course."

The last shot is of Paddy & Eileen's daughter competing at the Leicester track sometime in the 1980's. Christine is riding a Bill Whitcomb track bike.

We'd very much like to see your action shots. Please send any contribution's to merseysidebicycles@gmail.com
