Andy, I showed my 93 year old Dad your photo, he coveted his brothers Velo. It was an hour before I managed to interrupt him.It looks a very careful restoration, perfect style.

Here are some pics of me sulking on the back of my Dad's bike because my big brother is up front.

None, ??all i know is when he sells one it goes throughs Bonhams to a worldwide audience,and he wont pay them a sellers premium!!!! (he is also a yorkshire man):D
Shame you cant come to Meridan,he will be with me and can talk the hind legs of a Donkey on bikes!
Its not that long ago that he sold his fireblade,because the riding position was hurting his back and he was upset that he couldnt get his knee down!!! Not one for gardening my old man!! must be in the blood.
He once owned one of Kenny Roberts track bikes,said it was a b---h to ride as all the power came in at once,great if you have world class ability.

I am trying to work out how I can get to Meridian. It would be fun to meet your Dad as bikers can talk bikes 24/7.

I've been grounded for 4 weeks following a medical 'incident' so can't drive.

Trying to persuade my wife she can drive but she won't so can't force her. I think me telling her about my visit and ride with you has had an impact:eek:

Will you be forced to drive at the shoe and handbag sale???
Will your insurance not let you have a friend drive for just one day if you inform them??My broker always sorts that for unforseen problems? Would be great to get a full set on Sunday:D

Very nice collection!

That last Vincent pictured looks like it has a CBR900 front end. A bike I raced about a decade ago.
