David,you might like to know that the late John Hutchinson's outfit is up for auction which surprises me as I thought the family wanted to keep it.Wonderful selection of photos btw.Thanks for your kind words David.
I need to also add that out of all the different solo and sidecar marques I've raced, the best support I've had has been when racing Vincent-HRDs. When I first got The Fast Lady, David Bowen kindly donated many Black Lightning and other engine parts through his network and many contacts. Later, David became one of my official pit crew members and was there on the day to help scrape me off the track. Although we're only custodians of our machines, I believe our enthusiasm for the brand is our common bond.

The last incarnation of The Fast Lady before my incident. It's amazing what money can do!

Below is an image of the Daynes Fast Lady which was a big wheel kneeler built before mine. Interesting to note that sidecar racers always have the biggest smiles.
