A Picture of my Dad
Here's a photo of my Dad Geoff, taken I guess in about 1956. A motorcycle fanatic all of his life and a great lover of Norton singles particularly the CS1. I guess family responsibilities forced him into buying the Vincent. We lived in Wiltshire and he worked in Hertfordshire so it was backwards and forwards every weekend. As I remember he always reckoned the big Vin to be over-rated, if it wasn't spokes in the back wheel breaking it was adjusting the quirky clutch. He used to say that a well set up 650 Triumph twin would run rings around it.
He was a great bloke and I miss him on a daily basis.
