Who Is Martyn Ogborne?
Suzuki GB employee Martyn Ogborne was Barry Sheene’s mechanic from 1975 to 1979 and again in 1983 and 1984 when Sheene returned to Suzuki from Yamaha. Ogborne retired last year after a 42-year career with Suzuki but still does work for the Suzuki Vintage Parts programme and also for Team Classic Suzuki. Something of a legend within Suzuki GB, Ogborne was opening a cafe named after him (Oggy’s) in Suzuki’s HQ when MCN visited.
