There's a nicely aged Classic Bike Sprint sticker on Ray's fuel tank (not sure what year its from, but could be 1994)
I went to spectate at the first Ultimate Classic Bike Sprint at North Weald, and believe it was 1991 (please correct me if I'm wrong) as I have a sticker that says June 16, so assuming that was a Sunday, that makes it 1991, eek, 23 years ago!!
The sticker says "featuring Super Nero, Pegasus, Hagon Jap, Mighty Mouse, Blown Rudges". I'd seen some of these at Blackbushe in the '70's, so quite a good 'nostalgia day'.
Have another sticker which looks the same as that on Ray's bike and dated July 25th (with the sketch of George Brown on Super Nero), which equates to 1994 if the event was on a Sunday.
Back in '91, we talked to a very friendly chap from the NSA (National Sprint Association) by the name of Reg Hark (who sadly passed away in, I believe, 2013), plus some other riders and spanner-men, and got the bug to get be "on the other side of the fence". My mate Andy & I then proceeded to buy a bike to share until we could afford individual bikes.
The rest, as they say, is history.
