Gus was a speed­way star

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

In the lat­est is­sue you men­tion Gus Kuhn Mo­tor­cy­cles in Clapham. I bought the first Suzuki GS850 that the shop had ever sold and re­mem­ber Vin­cent Davey well. He was a good guy and I bought a few bikes off him, a Nor­ton Com­mando frame and many parts. Vin­cent was Gus Kuhn’s son-in-law and that’s how he came to run the shop af­ter Gus passed away in 1966. You say that Gus was a tri­als rider, in fact he was a re­ally good pro­fes­sional Speed­way rider and rode for Stam­ford Bridge and also had five years with Wim­ble­don. He also rode at the TT.
