…yeah Ken! that bike was a gem, a real nice one to ride, too. I had many an enjoyable day out on that one, all credit is due to you for getting me into all this, I have always liked bicycles but one look at that pale grey standard you built years back started the small wheels turning for me…
The bike has perhaps ended up in the best place, displayed for others to enjoy.. much more deserved that it’s Kirkby origins!
The speed will always be one of my faves for that reason, a simple very basic bike… transformed with the additions of a few sporting extras.. No doubt this helped the incredible sales success of the bike in the sixties? there is a nice one on Ebay at the moment.. looks like it will do well price wise too?
