A few photos of me and my fizzy ss50 which I brought new in January 1973 and regretfully sold it never to be seen again.....until recently, where I managed to locate it via the fiz site and we are now happily reunited once again.The original photos were taken in our back garden where my mother still lives today. I have also taken some shots of me and the fiz now in the same locations in attempt to recreate the original shots 36 years later with a few extra pounds and few grey hairs!!!...

Those trousers were very cool and the height of fashion I have you know!!... and how I ever rode the thing in those shoes ill never know, they were like clown shoes a nightmare trying to change down. Do you notice not a single item of motorcycle gear or safty clothing apart from the helmet and I seem to remember that was not even compolsory at the time! OH happy days.
