    Looks a lot like the great Sammy Miller's museum.I always make a point of going there whenever I'm back in England.I even got to have a little chat with him last time I was there,made my day.

    In those days riding was an adventure, I look at the photos my old man left and the roads were absolute shit and shops we not what we expect. You needed to be a mechanic just to ride 'cause they needed attention regularly. Not that they were junk,it's just how it was.

    Nice bike BTW.
