A friend owns a 1926 Rex Acme 250cc Sprint motorcycle, he is hoping to find out any history of it in sprint events from 1927 onwards to the early 1930's, if anyone has any ideas of
where to look etc he would be most grateful.
Details of the bike follow: Ridden by Ronald (Ron) Fidgeon.
It was designed/built at Rex Acme in 1926/7 by Wal Handley for Bert Fidgeon who owned a garage at Fazeley near Tamworth.
The bike was for his son Ron who competed in sprints for the next 3 or 4 seasons until he started to compete in road racing on Nortons ( 7th in Manx 1932).
there after the bike was in the garage showroom at Fazeley.
The history is known postwar as it featured in various magazine articles & in the Racing Motorcycles book by John Griffiths.
It was owned by a couple of UK people before ending up in a museum in Scotland & later in Denmark, now in Belgium.
But no one seems to have listed what it did or where it competed from 1927 to about 1930ish.
At the time there must have been various events it was used in, but where?
Any help would be appreciated. J-J.
