Following the film of Norton Motorbikes whizzing around the lanes of Stonnall featured here last weekend, reader and local history author Clive Roberts has found the above video of Brian Crighton, who used to own the Honda shop in Silver Court, Brownhills in the 70s and 80s. It was posted on YouTube by Triumphman7.
Brian is apparently the chap sat on the motorbike as they start it. By all accounts he’s a genius and a gentleman, to boot. This film was from 2007 – if anyone knows what Brian is doing now, please shout up.
Cheers to Clive, and don’t forget, copies of his book are still available, but selling out fast, so bag one while you can.
