MEET­ING DAD’S BIKE

Classic Bike (UK) - - YOUR CLASSICS -

Just to let you know, I met up with Brian, who owns my dad’s old BSA C15, this evening at the Great Bent­ley bike meet. Thank you for putting me in touch with Brian and the old C15 through your Way We Were pages – it’s much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Brian (pic­tured with me on the left) only lives about five miles from where my dad lived. He has owned the bike since the early ’80s – it is still in its orig­i­nal con­di­tion and has never been re­stored. It still has the orig­i­nal front num­ber­plate. He even let me have a go – I had for­got­ten how hard it is to ride a bike with the gears on the wrong (right?) side!
