Quote from previous post by Jogon:"Over the bridge there was a motorbike shop that had a Vincent Black Shadow in the window."The motorbike shop must have been Danny Cork's, in the shadow of Salem Church. Danny was an old guy who was helped in his shop by several of his sons (can't remember exactly how many there were!).In the late 70's and early 80's his shop was chock full of motorbike parts for BSA's, Triumphs, Matchless, AJS, Norton and so on, many of the parts were decades old but still in their original factory packaging.Whether you had an old British banger such as a BSA C15 or a Bantam, or a classic like a BSA Gold Star or a Norton Dominator, it seemed there was no spare part that Danny didn't have on his shelves. And goodness knows, those bikes got through plenty of spare parts....If you liked old bikes, it was worth going in there just to look at the bikes he had for sale, it was like some kind of "National Motorcycle Museum" with free admission.I don't know when exactly his shop was demolished, but it stood in the space behind where the busy shelters are now, overlooked by the Esso garage (if that's still there?).

I can't even find tech support, let alone read it, let alone understand it - a kind soul on these pages showed me (in one line) how to add the cat pic to my profile.
