Old Trials Stories from the Fifties-Sixties Motorcycle Magazines and Papers.

*******

After spotting  some interesting BSA trials articles on eBay, and purchasing them.

 I thought what a good idea to set up a page for these, History of the factory machines and comments, and more, that we would never have seen.

 So thanks to Mike Brown. and I am now on his favourite list. 

I will start with the three he has sent me  and add more when he finds them.

*****

I will also look through my "Old Stock" and find more that I find interesting..

 

December 4th 1958.

Do you want the pages like above or tidied up like below? let me know.

Barry the last time I heard is still with us and enjoying his evening in the pub once a week.

After he stopped building trials sidecars and he did build a lot. he took up building scale model  steam powered motor vehicles, and showing them.

 I have a picture somewhere.

Here is a page sent to me by Justyn Norek,

With Sam doing his best to stay awake.

I spose winning that many trials does get boring after a while.

And  I bet he is thinking do you know, I need something else to do, I think I will set up a Motorcycle Museum?

You know when you had the "Blue -Un" delivered every week usually on a Wednesday if the trains didn't break down,

Well some weeks even then you thought why am I spending 1s 3d on this every week?

There is nothing in it worth reading only the results. and then you got a week like this,

 It was crammed full on every page of something worth a read, So here is the Starmaker story. there is Greeves to follow from this same Mag.

enjoy.

Page One of Two.

Scanned from my stock of magazines.

"Otterman"

I will tidy the pages up later . and add some more.

 

I thought what better page than this to put on some vintage film of the same period,

 So here is some unique footage of the 1960 International Six Days Trial.
