I am trying to find out information regarding John Judge and RGM which was based in Hastings St Luton. I have recently acquired one of John Judge's Triumph Daytona race bikes.

All I know about Rose Green Motors, Luton is they used to supply sidecar chassis at one time,circa 1970. They were quite popular amongst the chair boys at the time.

I seem to recall they also did a rather tasty large-diameter disc brake conversion for early Commandos.

Were there 2 racers named John Judge?

John Judge from Burnley was a friend of mine who tragically lost his life in the '92 Junior MGP aged 33. Are they one and the same?

I was thinking the same thing John and I were entered as as team mates for the senior along with a guy called Rusty in 92.

Thank you for clearing that up Cranclive, The John Judge who I and Steve O'Brien knew worked at the local Ford dealership (Skippers) in Burnley where I used to live, I got to know John very well from my dealings there and from our common love of bike racing, John lived for his racing and was always a force to be reckoned with when he raced. He lost his life in a tragic accident at Rhencullen in the '92 Junior MGP. Still much missed by all who knew him. :cry:
