Extra details I was pleased to get this machine as as HRM was my bike shop when I had my first serious bike at the age of 17, and he was such a nice man. He always had time to offer friendly advice and I bought all my bike stuff there. Hand painted name on down-tube as H R M had run out of transfers. The carrier was also fabricated by H R M.  Dynamo mount and left-hand lamp bracket boss.
