Born same year as my father(95 later this year),I`m sure he`d speak well about Gregory,but he didn`t like Bader,haha.A mate of mine used to caddy for Bader(and two other aces)during his school hols,so I know why Bader wouldn`t appeal to Dad.Too loud/brash and a certain reference to an interaction with a water fowl whenever he fluffed a shot,which was often.Used to crease my mate up. 

My father flew reconnaissance over Germany.

At one base my father was at he met Brendan(Paddy)Finucane who he respected,he said his Spitfire was doted upon, away from the others.

Lovely little Rigid D1,bet that connection ups the value a tad.

Wonder if the gaiters an optional extra?My project doesn`t have them and I will need to make a rack.

Thanks Wolf,enjoyed those.

Lot of Scoot pics,have you been mod-ified? 🙂 I think if I owned the one in pic12,I`d have to turn that front-end into a face because I reckon it`s halfway there already.

I admit that I`d never seen a Norbstar(pic 38) before,but I shouldn`t be surprised such a bike exists.
