I have a feeling that the water section was at the Kenton and Kingsbury Club Trial held between Cholesbury and Bellingdon on the Chilterns at Mathews brickworks.
I lived there as a boy and always walked over to the Trial every November.
If I am right how strange I could have seen George long before I knew what a Vincent was...

David,

I was wondering about the George Brown photo. It looks like he has the eccentrics in the side car position. Was this done on the Trials bike?
