Still going strong
Dave Roper is heading back to THE Island to celebrate his victory on the Mountain Course (see my post with details) so I thought I'd post a pic of him & the Matchless g50 #1709 on which he made history:
The guy with the question mark is catweazle when he was a bit younger
And, he's going to ride shortly ,I hope not too shortly , after being knocked down on his daily commute and suffering a " non -displaced fracture of the C-4 vertibrae.
Dave's a tough guy , for sure.
Is this the exact same bike?
Gave him a hand to unpack it at the Manx last year.
( Funny. Heaps of people standing around looking. Errr these guys could do with a hand.... )
I pretty sure your pics are of the 3 valve 7R AJS. The Manx winning bike is a G-50 Matchless.
Hope this isn't 205, but the comment a few posts up got to reading about Dave Roper. Seems like it is the same bike.
Edit: maybe not. Cool stuff either way.
You're right. Not paying attention!! Doh!
