Yes the triumph could do with the Ashley treatment, heres one I made earlier, as they say SWScan00013.jpg That Triumph 650 was in worse condition that the T90, it looked like it had been rode home from the white hart parked up in back yard and left uncovered for 20 years! apart from new wheels,exhausts/silencers,seat.mudguards,lights and other bits it had new mains, crank regrind, big ends and rings, I did get it finished, mot'd and on the road, but no photos thus after all vanished years later from my car which was pinched by some barsteward

Re "before or after Carlton Square"

is that a question re the location of the shop? or an era question ie was it "before or after Dawsons had a shop at Carlton Sq? "(if in fact they did)? I meant it as a location,

looked on google map, they were actually on Wright St off Victoria Rd Netherfield the shop backing up to the railway line.

Hi again ok my first bike in 1963 was a B.S.A bantam 125 did 55mph downhill with a following wind! then a enfiel bullet, triumph 21 , tiger 100,

B.S.A shooting star, B.S.A goldie, Tiger cub, Tiger 110, Thunderbird, Ariel arrow and 2 mopeds a raliegh runabout and a nsu quickley, i used to buy them keep them a while and sell them on ( and i apoligize in advance if anyone had problems after buying one of them!)

A good friend of mine Terry Woodcock died in a acciedent on Alfreton road, so we all sold our bikes out of respect for his family who lived over the road and i never rode again as i didn't want my parents to go through what terry's did, R.I.P MY FRIEND.
