    These are some of my past treasures I was custodian to for a while. There is lots more. But I got to find photos and get my beloved to put them on computer for me.
    Enjoy and Ride Safe.

    So did I. That particular bike has a great story behind it. And was engine rebuilt by Steve McFarlane of SRM way back when he was a little workshop in Penarth Docks. The stories I could tell about that bike is unbelievable. Sadly well not sadly But I had my first born who had Cystic Fibroses and the old windows were making him ill with drafts so my beloved bike was sold to make way for double glazing.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Thanks and I sometimes think I should have kept that one. I think we all get that.

    Yes I had a few bikes. I see I fall in love with them and they ended up in my Garage. Can't stop myself. When I find the photos there are many more to come.
    Regards

    Yes out of all the bikes I had this one I really miss. Maybe due to the circumcises at the time of parting with it. Or we had a bond. When I had that one there was only two registered in the UK and I know the other one. I really could write a book about that bike.
    Regards
    Joe.
