It doesn't even look like John Surtees!!
Bugger - hate it when that happens The only photos I have of the man are like this



Suppose I should have guessed. A Vincent - from what I remember reading Surtees only raced a sidecar outfit of his Dads and was an apprentice at the factory.

Called round to a friends workshop yesterday. He always has some nice bikes in for repair/servicing

If your ever passing. Just round the corner from the Triumph factory.

Unit 3, George St
LE9 8GN
Barwell,
Leicester (Leicestershire)
01455 847677

The guy on the right is a customer and had never ridden his Enfield cafe racer before. Hopefully he made it home, painful to watch a newbie trying to ride a strange machine for the first time.



A10 Plunger getting an electrics upgrade



A few other bikes in for work



The Triumph is a late Jubilee. Nice brakes



The A65 bobber looked neat

1956 Ariel VHA

An older pic that deserved to get scanned and posted. My dad's old VHA-engined Ariel Red Hunter.
