The way we were .

Post by fastbob » Mon Jun 29, 2020 7:39 pm

An old friend just sent me this beautifully scanned picture of myself on my second bike . It was of a primitive design using push rods and a primary chain . Glad I've got a modern bike now .....oh hang on . I know we've done this before but if anyone has a picture of themselves on one of their early bikes please feel free to post .

Here's another picture of two friends of mine , both alive and well I'm happy to say . That's Gerry on his Hurricane that he's still got and Rich who has sadly slipped out of the biking world .

It's in better condition now than it was then . Last time I saw it it was in a van being driven to a secret location in case the ex wanted it as part of an acrimonious divorce settlement .
