Think British bikes, and what name springs to mind?
Even if you don’t love bikes, you just gotta love this colour!

My dad had a Norton, partially rebuilt it as well. It was his pride and joy but my mum hated it, thought he would kill himself on it one day. So he sold it for £35 !!
I think that was around 1974. Wonder what £35 then, is equal to today. Dad thought it was a good price then.

My dad, though, had a very large Norton on which he would sometimes travel over 1000 miles in a day …
Crikey, my rear-end gave up after 650 miles once, but 1000, ouch.
Indeed. He was, of course, totally nuts.
My brother had a Triumph, and a few others. I need to post the pic I have of him on his chopper back in the 70’s.
Definitely… I had quite a few custom styled bikes. I rode a chopper once with extended forks. It was like trying to drive a bus around your living room
Good morning to you too Kim (or afternoon as it is here, just)
Not sure about the colour Spike – it looks suspiciously similar to the contents of a babies nappy!
What about Norton, BSA or Royal Enfield – all equally iconic?
Indeed, but I’ve always been a Bonnie fan
But never brave enough to own one – not much of a mechanistic!
I have got her greatest hits album, might listen to it later!
