PETER NORTH, who died in April, was the son of A. P. (Percy) North who founded the company A. P. North Pty, Ltd., Matchless and Francis Barnett motorcycle distributors in Wentworth Avenue, Sydney.
In his school holiday time, and whenever possible at other times, Peter could be found around the showroom or in the workshop area tinkering, and learning about the motorcycle trade. He learned to ride on what was probably a company demonstrator, and could be found in later days enjoying the joys of motorcycling. Peter’s parents were both school teachers and so appreciated the value of a good education with the result that after his Leaving Certificate, he continued his learning at Sydney University, and later at Harvard.
