1931 Calthorpe Pictures

Add Your Photos!

Thanks to Lou Powderly for this picture of his uncle, Victor Quinn, who won the Leinster 200 in 1931 on a Calthorpe that he had prepared himself.   Family legend has it that this caused quite a stir at the time; not least at Calthorpes!   Lou remembers seeing the ‘bike in the ’50s but what happened to it after his death I have no idea.

And this is a link to a Pathe clip of the actual event http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=4605
