life in the slow lane

Real Classic - - Sunbeam B24 350 -

When one mod­ern bike rider de­cided to de­cel­er­ate into a more laid-back life­style, a 1930s Sunbeam sin­gle pro­vided the per­fect ve­hi­cle for his tran­si­tion. Henry Greg­son re­veals what turned out to be a chal­leng­ing project…

In most peo­ple’s lives there comes a time when he or she de­cides to slow down, to move away from the fast lane and just take things a lit­tle more leisurely. Ge­off is one such per­son. A few years ago he took the de­ci­sion to sell his mod­ern sports­bike and slip back in time to an era be­fore he was born, so he could ex­pe­ri­ence the more gen­teel ways and ex­cel­lent en­gi­neer­ing of the 1930s. Even so, mod­ern tech­nol­ogy played a cru­cial role in his plans – search­ing on­line to find a suit­able project.
