Restore/colour please + ID for FAB motorbike
« on: Tuesday 01 November 11 07:12 GMT (UK) »
Can I ask for another restore please?

If colour possible that would be great also. Hope it is an ok scan. Another picture glued into a scrapbook. :(

Does anyone know anything about the wonderful bike?

thank you very much

Could it be a JAP I wonder? what ever it is the bike was more likely to have been the photographer's and was being used as a prop, by the way have you noticed that the "driver" has dropped his newspaper and it is laying on the floor by the bike.

Blimey! two photos with the same bike. Who would have thought that?

japeflakes , thank you for your restore and the link. Excellent work finding that.

syliva - many thanks for the link. Good work again

OR, thank you for your comments also. No, I had not noticed the newspaper until you brought it to my attention. A very interesting bike.

Edwardo - I think you are right. Must be a photographers prop at the seaside. A great picture all the same.

many thanks to all

Genie ;D
