Spitfires last year was 1968 ...replaced by the three-cylinder 750cc A75 Roocket III late in 1968

The Gold star finished in 1963... something I always wanted
but never got ..

Perhaps it was a few year earlier, would not surprise me if they took a few years to clear the last of them.

Certainly not the 3, I knew somebody who had one.

If I was still going near Coventry could pop into the Motorcycle Museum...

Yes I'm sure, my dad had a 500cc Norton, and my brother, 350 BSA.

The man had mothballed the bike and his car when he went into the army, in 1940. After the war, he got the car going and registered the bike as well to get the petrol ration for it. When rationing stopped, he sold it to me. it was a little wierd because they put the big, 3 1/2 Gal. tank on it.
