    There's no finer sound for me than Mr Turner's Twin and Goldies, with the exception possibly of the real Rocket Goldstar I had in my Yoof, still miss that bike. Racing to Squires Milk Bar as it was then at Sherburn-In- Elmet, the North's equivalent of the Ace. Happy days, wonder where they all are now?

    That looks the part it's lovely. If I bought it I'd have to root out my open face skid lid and goggles from the loft :)
