Classic Bike (UK) - - READER ADS -

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.

Easy, Wayne – that’s the fam­ily’s only trans­port!
