  4. The likes of Charlie, with Percy Tait, Mick Grant …. and the rest of the ‘boys in the band’ were every bit my heroes, as I traipsed around the UK circuits in the 60′s and 70′s.

    Here’s Charlie racing with Percy, Stan Woods and Tony Jeffries at Cadwell Park in 1973.

    Always remembered :)

    Not quite right here guys … (and unless you were there at the time.. you would not actually realize it.. )

    I worked with Charlie at Bryants of Biggleswade during the 1970′s ( 1973 – 1978) and bought from Bryants and raced his Suzuki TR 750 ..that he achieved a 3rd place with at the Classic TT in 1975 ..this picture is a bit misleading.. this is after he has actually left Bryants and set up on his own ( Circa the mid Eighties.. ) you can see the “SANDBY MOTERCYCLES” stickers on the fairing ..

    However he is sitting on a Colin Seeley framed(Norton I beleive).. but with Bryants of Biggleswade leathers on .. and (as ever Wallie .. looking on .. )
