Easy peasy.
I was sent the first three pics by one of the blokes in my (scuba) diving club, who's retired mate restores bikes - three of which are pictured. His words of discription follow;

I have attached three photos pro-tem. The first is of my BMW when I had completed the engine rebuild and was left with only the tank to fit. I was delighted to find that it started second kick, and ran really well. I discovered that it was still on the standard pistons and bore, and that the oil slingers (or centrifuges) were only half-full. That gives me reason to believe that the indicated mileage of 35k might be accurate.

The second is of my 1960 Greeves 25DB Sports. It is a two stroke twin that goes like the devil. It is currently off the road as I am going to strip it down (eventually) to cure a wiring fault induced by a previous owner. It has what is known as a flywheel magneto to generate a spark from one set of coils with battery charging from the second set. He had rewired it and omitted to include the charging coils, thus turning the battery into a total loss system. Although it works, it deeply offends the purist and conformist in me, and will have to be cured.

The third is of my 1939 Montgomery, which is a very rare beast indeed.
It is a 125cc commuter bike powered by a Villiers two stroke engine.
It dates from 1939 and was one of the last to leave the factory in Coventry before it was obliterated by the Luftwaffe in that great raid that destroyed the heart of the city. It is in running order and indeed was taxed and MoT up to last July. I have got it in store awaiting restoration, although I have done some jobs on it already, such as rebuilding the rear wheel and remanufacturing the rear hub.

I'm trying to get a visit to his 'shed' to see if he has any he wants rid of cheapo like!!

The other pics, well now. A bare arsed totty eating an apple while sitting on an early Honda 4, Bills new car and Bills new suit.

I've recently watched World of Sport wrestling from the '70's. I think I saw Bill on that...
