Harris Performance has started the new year with a full order book for its classic Harris framed racers and road machines from the 70s and 80s.

"We met a lot of old customers at the Motorcycle Live event at the NEC last year, as well as a lot of new, older customers who were either looking to rebuild a classic bike or enquiring about a complete new-build machine," explained Harris Performance commercial director Steve Bayford. "Whilst the level of enquiries at Motorcycle Live was good, the roll-on effect after the event has been excellent and we are still getting feedback from it after the Christmas and new year break."

The main interest has centred on the Harris F1 chassis, but there have also been a growing number of enquiries about complete F1 Endurance racers.

"The growing classic racing scene is also fueling a revival of interest in the Harris Magnum road machines of the 70s and 80s and the customers are largely over 50 year olds who either owned or wanted to own a Harris machine back then and now, having had the family and paid off the mortgage, want to live or re-live the dream," says Bayford.
