(9 years old)
This is part 3 of a long letter with pics I recieved
from Marshall Harris,
describing some of the amazing bikes his dad (Simon Harris) built.
(part 1) (part 2)
The last one he built was called "Fire Damage"
because people say it looks like it has been on fire. This one Dad says
handles the best and is easier to ride, that must be why he has now
got hold of a 15"x15" wheel with a 345x15" tyre to go
in the back....
I think when it is finished my brother and sister
will stay out of the way for his first ride. I will finish writing now
and send you the details of the Trike and Fire Damage on a separate
sheet, I think Dad will be able to write them out himself.
