Very cool, thanks for sharing.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting.

 

My father rode speedway against the Milne brothers when they came to NZ in the 30's - and was never sure what Cordy was riding but thought it may have been a Crocker.

I actually see some visual design commonalities between the castings of both.
