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.
