First ever bike:

First of the RDs, 250E,KVL 110V:

Second 250E:

400E (only photo I could find):

First of the LCs, MCP 131W:

LC2 had been raced from new (not by me), this is before I fitted lights and registered it Q839 PFE

F1 at Cadwell park, AJS and Matchless owners day

RD350R, K568 OFE

First time I've holed a piston!

A few ZZRs, I swapped the 350R for the first one:


The final one after the collision which finished biking for me for a few years:

back again with Fazer 600:


These two were rotting in a friends garden, I recommissioned and sold them for him. The Honda had weird torsion bar valve springs one of which snapped when I was riding ramming a valve through a piston!

Great photos. Luckily none of mine have me in them!

If I had to chose one of mine which I wish I kept it would have to be the LC2. Sorry not AC!
