Ok knickerbrook, seeing as you asked!  Another one from my archive.... WWW as I've got no idea!



No 132 could be Jeff Boniface's Manx with 'Jeffs Motor Spares' on the fairing. The rider looks more like Dave Habel than Jeff.

Tom - I too thought it might have been one of Boniface's Manxes.

I remember Brian "Fred" Hussey and Paul Selleck riding them in the seventies. They were oily old crates, but seemed to go well. Hussey showed everyone the way to go around Brands at a Bemsee meeting I was at once. He was so quick! Here is Selleck in good company on the grid at Brands. (Photographer unknown).

Anyone remember those Dunstall discs as on 94 ?

Had some on my 672 BSA twin which had loads of ex-works bits on it. Bought it from a motorcycle dealer in Baldock. It was ex-Tony Smith.


Next thing I new the bottom had dropped out of anything that had BSA in its' name, so I broke it. :wave:  The forks went to Hadleigh custom.

Mark, after my first ever racing crash, your dad welded up the footrest hanger for me on this bike.




He had a car repair/workshop? in Mill Hill near the service road entrance to Scratchwood services on the M1 if I remember correctly.  I lived in Boreham Wood at the time.
