Enjoying a Sunbeam or two...


Just enjoying July’s CBG on holiday in Cornwall. Great article on Harry Bott on his Model 1 Sunbeam.

The picture of Len

Randles on his Sunbeam is great, too (on the Subscribe page – Matt). The bike is an overhead valve parallel Model 9 rather than a side valve as stated. Tommy de la Hay did win the senior on a side valve Sunbeam in 1920. And the team dug this clipping out, of Len Randles – thought your readers may like it. Many thanks for a great publicatio­n.

Marston Sunbeam Club & Register

Many thanks for your correction and the clipping, David. I was lucky enough to be the custodian of a Model 90 for a while, though it spent its life in the kitchen as an ornament! I have always found the Marston Sunbeam Club most friendly and helpful; hope you are all getting out on them. And no Sunbeam jokes with the current weather – Matt
