Photos from Vin Allen, our friend from Long Eaton.
Vin in his youth. Vin is now in his 90s and still as sharp as a knife.
I have just had six weeks in Florida with my son. He left England in 1982 and said he was leaving a sinking ship. Well before that time he had got a job abroard, at a firm that hired out sailing yachts for holiday makers. They had 13 of these, and John maintained them and he got interested in the sea. So by 1985 he started a business and got married to an American girl. If you click on to quantumhydraulic.com it will explain how he has done well.
Everybody seems motor bike mad in the USA. I think this is a Henderson. This guy works on all old bikes and when you collect them it's amazing what he does.
