    CB or CD my first motorbike after scooters was a CD175 all I had left of it was the RH 175 badge off the side panel so it started a restoration that ended up like this.

But that was the way it was. We all bought our bikes, mainly 50's vintage, at the local coffee bar, but remember that our weekly wage was in the £2.10 area( well mine was). Although just before I met Sue in 1963 I swapped my then latest bike for a Jowett Bradford van, it must have been kinda special, cos after more than half a century, she's still cooking breakfast for us. This has also led me to rooting through the toons from around then ( I do have a few that are rather special tho) this is another one that has reared its ugly head

    You’ve certainly taken us down memory lane!

    BTW, must be an incredible Jowette van to cook breakfasts for 50 years!
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I really am sad that I cannot afford it, it seems ideal for a geriatric old rocker. I rode one donkeys years ago when our local (now defunct) bike shop got one as a demonstrator, kick start and electric leg too. Still, life moves on. Thanks for the offer though
