I believe this is the 750, only Stringer used the 1000 in Trans Trophy @ Mallory, though @ Brands (picture from Brands) Loctite may have put the 1000 in? Did McElnea win the final race? if so it could well have been the 1000?

He did win race 3 just checked, pretty murky couple of years with rumours of oversize engines?

One from 1977, a bit of a WWW but shouldn't be difficult.

A bit obscure in some ways, had a well known father and I think he was better than some people gave him credit for in club racing circles in the early-mid 80's....nice bloke too.

2nd pic looks like Lenham Builders on the side? Stuart Melen? does not look like him though, & looks like on his back name ends in ON not EN, so not sure.

Yes, it is Jerry Fiford on a Honda 400 in the pic with Robin Drury.

The rider on the 350TZ is Richard Chesson, Bill's son, taken at Paddock Bend, Lydden (where else :D) in 1983.

Bit late but think its Dave Brown Mick?

Only just seen this.

You're correct Graham, grovelling apology from me! :blush:

Dave is recovering well from major surgery and is rebuilding his bike for next season, best of luck to him! :up:

That's a good 'un of Huewen, Gra, his eyes aren't focussed further round the corner so he must be about to pass someone.

Cracking shot, isnt there a story behind that bike? I recall reading in MCN the tax man came looking for several TZ750's that had come into the country minus the VAT, I think he turned up at a race meeting and I seem to recall the story naming Vaughan and a couple of others who had their bikes confiscated while it was all sorted out.

Interesting ! Looks like he's clocked Gra at Druids and thought, "Jeez, that's not a bloody taxman, is it ?"....
