|The Bovingden Brothers and Bitza|
Times were very different then and many a Vintage bike appeared with such niceties as aluminium mudguards and even dual seats. The object of the exercise was to get a bike up and running and if it meant fitting a few non-original parts, so be it. The Bovingden stable also included a CS1 fitted with thirties forks and doubtless other bikes I don't know about. By the time I joined the VMCC in 1958, the brothers seem to have discontinued their membership but I understand they were very active in the fledgling speed events organised in the Club's early days.
