Pride and Clarke, Brixton, had shops on both side of the road. The shop fronts were painted red.Which London dealers had the outside alloy painted red or orange? Both sides of the road? My place to visit was Monty and Wards they sold me a 1951 7R AJS all road registered for 50 quid with push bike lights rode it for a year bump started it everywhere. Proper caff racer no chequer tape or studed leathers needed. Those posers down 'the bike shed' make me smile.
Pinks had a forecourt in front of the shop, which was a customary meeting place for motorcylists and bikes to gather on Saturday mornings.I can't think how or why I got to Pinks, It was before I had a Motorcycle.
I lived about 5 miles away at the time.
Funny how some things drive you Mad.
I never went then, I should have worded that different, I had a 250 BSA Ron gave me when I was 14 !,Pinks had a forecourt in front of the shop, which was a customary meeting place for motorcylists and bikes to gather on Saturday mornings.
Bonjour Bill, I see that you worked at MLG in Chiswick and wondered if you were there when they took a BMW R69S to Montlhery in 1961 to try to obtain the 12 hour and 24 hour records, only to be beaten by a week by Velocette, one of the Velo team being our very own Bruce Main-Smith. As an aside, the "L" of MLG was Charles Lock and I was a mate of his son John when I was involved in selling Porsche parts and John was racing a 911.Keith Pattendon ??, My spelling is getting worse, If that's possible !.
Funny , He came on here a long while ago.
Peter, If you had come round the corner, I may have served you myself, At Aitchanbee Motorcycles.
Unless I had already gone to MLG, BMW's, Or Conways, Shepherds Bush.
I got about !!.
