My First Motorbike

Loads of kids have to put up with some plastic toy bike. I had to make do with this Triumph. Okay, it was my Dad's 1951 Thunderbird and just look at the state of it! Filthy. It was grim in them days.

The photo was taken sometime around 1958 or 59 on the drive of my Gran and Grandad Devall's house in Rutland Drive, Morden.

I still have the helmet and goggles in my garage although they are more of a collectors item now and about 55 years old!!
