indeed Jon. Both bikes will have competed in the late sixties or 1970 time with these numbers. The ‘Warbird’ bike (CCS251) was a 998cc Vincent owned by R.E. Ditcher and was a Class C bike (751cc to 1000cc) but I haven’t a glue about the other machine. Nick will be along shortly…

Pete and Wally were both members of the Eastern Cruisers street club based in Romford, which did a great deal in the promotion of both Drags and Street Rods. Club membership names read like a whos who with names like Keith Harvie, Tony Merry, The Stones, Norm Wilding, and many others with Custom Car & Hot Car magazines as regular visitors whenever they needed some copy!
