They were a good buy the 7R (1951 long stroke) was £50 from Monty & Wards Twickenham complete with bulb horn on RH footrest & goldie silencer . I knew all the revs for the speed limits if the cops stopped me and I fitted a bracket for the push bike light on the front, the rear was was a flat back battery from woolies fitted in the back pocket of my jeans and a red painted bulb in the zip pocket in the back of the racing seat (AJS fitted the pocket there as a spare spak plug holder for the TT) I bumped it everywhere and I knew every filling station on a hill in Bucks. I had a triangle of tubes that went on the footrest for a stand held on the back with an aerolastic (theres a story!) I used it for a year sole transport never let me down. sold it for £75 & thought I did well!Tim
I would like to see a couple of "racers" like a 7R and a G45 on the road these days!
The Ace may not be exactly the same these days (what is?) but the music is right there. The ambience will never be the same again, but then, a good proportion of the clients were not even born "back in the day"
Old farts rule, yeah!
