Arnie comes through

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In your shed -

“I met Arnie Fletcher, then owner of Len Manch­ester Mo­tor­cy­cles back in ’77 and this is the Yamaha TZ750 he put me on, first for the 1978 Plum Pud­ding race at Croft where I fin­ished third and I joined the team for 1979. I won the Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship and rode for Bri­tain in the Transat­lantic Tro­phy. Barry Sheene was Transat­lantic cap­tain. The first thing Barry said to me was: “Never f**king heard of you.” Arnie still has the TZ750.”
