This very special machine was purchased some time ago by the current owner. It was dismantled for around 8 years before that, the rebuild started in earnest with a full engine rebuild including new bearings, pistons, new conrods etc, Phil Pick from Triple Cycles completely rebuilt the gearbox. The current vendor visited Harris Performance with some pictures to help with the restoration. Lester Harris said, "he wondered where it had gone and ended up over the years". The vendor was informed that Lester told him it was one of three prototypes for track testing and racing whilst the other two did not survive due to crashing.
Raced by Jim Wells in F750 and endurance, previously, the Harris was taken back to Lester to have a look at and at that time some work was carried out by him, which included a fork brace, battery box, chainguard, a one-off exhaust system, and a White Power suspension spring. All the wheels were rebuilt with new bearings tyres and tubes at the time. The amount of work that has been carried out has been listed by the current vendor. It was featured in the July 1989 performance magazine once completed. We have been advised the Harris Prototype is running very well and should be a delight for its new owner. It comes complete with a current V5C and various paperwork.
