Equally valid in this piece would have been: Bill Nils­son’s AJS 7R based scram­bler on which the Swede be­came the first of­fi­cial world 500cc MX world cham­pion in 1957; Les Archer’s Manx Nor­ton based ma­chine on which the Alder­shot lad was the last Euro­pean 500cc cham­pion in 1956; Jeff Smith’s ti­ta­nium BSA which ul­ti­mately didn’t work as hoped; pos­si­bly Yrjo Ves­ter­i­nen’s Comer­fords de­vel­oped Bul­taco which was hoped to pro­vide some­thing for the fac­tory to work with once its trou­bles were over; or even Gra­ham Noyce’s world cham­pi­onship Honda; the first Metisse cre­ated by Don and Derek Rick­man and Martin Lamp­kin’s Jumbo Bulto.
