Classic stuff Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, and they sound good as well.
Like cars you can't help noticing how narrow the tyres were compared to the things you see now.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Bill, and these have treads, I still can't get my head round the concept of slick tyres.
Nice, vivid shot. Jumps out of the screen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks David, they really are meant to be noticed in those colours I think.
Great colors
Brian Walbey: I think that must have been painted like that to make sure they are noticed.
Nicely taken, Brian, two elegant machines.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, and yes, fine machines, there's one for you and one for me, how does that sound.
What a line up, great shot of these racing machines!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, a fine duet aren't they.
Blimey ..they look good Brian .. was this over the current last weekend?
Brian Walbey: They do look good Richard. This was a weekend in the middle of August, I went with my old friend from Royston I used to go to races with and worked out it was at least 35 years since we had done this together, it was just like old times, for two old timers!!
fewww...legends of their own!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Juan, the BSA engines were the mainstay of club racers in the 50's and early 60's.in the U.K.
They look like a couple of stars Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Janet, great looking bikes aren't they.
They are very nicely looking bikes Brian. Alex Sinclair did very well!
Brian Walbey: Yes they look great don't they, and obviously they have a very good rider.
