        Apologies, I was replying to Pete Taylor’s post. I would be interested to know though if you bought the bike directly from Hailwood?

      Can I ask what year it is and the numbers? I’ve been trying to trace my old bike for donkeys years.

    Tom, would you mind if I re-posted the photograph on the bike racing nostalgia site of Atls F1? We sometimes run an informal guess the rider and bike comp there. This might fool some of them. You would be very welcome to join us there, simply Google Atlas F1, then the nostalgia forum, then the various bike threads.


  6. Hi Russell,
    Sorry for delay. Thats fine

    Regards Tom
