Get ahead in a shed

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

As a 68-year-old mo­tor­cy­clist who learnt to ride on a moped round a mate’s gar­den and cus­tomised his first bike, a Lam­bretta LD 150, at the age of 15 in his dad’s shed, I hope you will al­low me a lit­tle rant against the cur­rent fash­ion for call­ing cus­tom bikes built at great ex­pense in fully equipped work­shops ‘shed built’. Me and my mates in the 60s and 70s were build­ing the first chop­pers, café rac­ers and off road­ers etc in sheds, garages, and some­times on kitchen ta­bles – my first BSA Gold Flash chop­per com­bi­na­tion was built in 1971 in our din­ing room!
