COVER PIC­TURE

Classic Trial - - HOW TO RIDE... WITH SAMMY MILLER - Pic­ture: Brian Holder Ar­ti­cle: Sammy Miller and John Hulme

For many years I have of­ten won­dered who took the front cover pic­ture of the book ‘Clean to the Fin­ish’, seen here. I have trawled through many ar­chives but it was by pure chance, when look­ing at some Brian Holder neg­a­tive strips from the 1965 Scott, that I recog­nised Sammy Miller.

Sammy now spends many hours bring­ing old mo­tor­cy­cles back to life for his ex­cel­lent mu­seum, which just has to be on ev­ery­body’s ‘Bucket List’ of places to visit. The mu­seum is a liv­ing tes­ta­ment to Miller, whose love of mo­tor­cy­cles is as ev­i­dent now as it was all those years ago.

For all in­for­ma­tion on the mu­seum, in­clud­ing open­ing times, please visit the web­site: www.sam­mymiller.co.uk

JOHN HULME: “We are run­ning a se­ries of ‘How to Ride’, us­ing and up­dat­ing the text from his book ti­tled ‘Clean to the Fin­ish’. This book was first pub­lished in 1974 by Bruce Main-Smith & Co Ltd, and is now out of print and very col­lectable. The pic­tures have all been dig­i­tally re­pro­duced from the books. If you are the copy­right works orig­i­na­tor of any images please feel free to con­tact Clas­sic Trial Mag­a­zine, as with the pass­ing of time Sammy can­not re­mem­ber who gen­er­ated some of the images.
