  1. My cousin raced one of these about 1972-73 and it was unbelievably noisy, even on a
    tickover it tore your eardums apart but it was a very nice noise and a lovely-looking
    bike but so small and flimsy tyred. He sold the bike off and went into Hillman Imp-
    engine sidecars next. They were noisy, too. Happy days which inspired me into a long
    love affair with motorbikes when I was old enough for a licence.
