ALL SMILES ON THE FAMILY SIDECAR
These images of me, my older sister and my mum and dad were taken outside our house in Southend-on-sea around about 1963. The outfit was dad’s only transport and it would also be used to take the four of us on summer holidays to Devon and Cornwall. I was about five years old at the time and my abiding memory is being allowed to stand on the front chair passenger seat, with the tonneau rolled back, holding on to the windshield top for all my worth, the wind snatching away my breath. That was it – I was hooked! I’ve been riding motorcycles ever since I could hold one upright. Sadly, dad died a couple of years after these pictures were taken, so I never got to know him really well. However, I’m eternally grateful for those early formative memories. Wayne Harvey, Essex
Easy, Wayne – that’s the family’s only transport!
