    Please forgive me for jumping in here... but temptation too great.. sorry!

    Absolutely superb bikes there matey, are these all your's.?

    Certainly recognise most of them, though unsure about the one Triumph, as it looks like it may have a cast iron head and not the alloy version.
    Bonnies had the alloy head if I remember correctly, while tiger 110 had the iron head.
    Fancy listing what models they all are, (If they are yours)

    If yours... Any of these for sale?

    Very nice indeed Tadpole.
    How long ago since that pic was taken?

    No speedtwins there unless the side cowlings have been removed of course. I would say its a 110.

    5TA was the 500 speedtwin, usually Maroon in colour and the 3TA was the 350cc Triumph 21. usually finished in Lightish metalic looking blue.

    Had both in younger days, the 5TA was quite popular with police forces, and both models had the part enclosed side cowlings.

    Sadly, hardly have any pics at all from my younger days especially with the many bikes I had. This is one of my 1955 BSA A10 650cc Superflash (Blue in colour) taken around 1959/1960 at Brands Hatch, I'm the young feller on the left. Other pic is of me during a day out to Blackpool. while visiting the pleasure beach. The gear they wear these days has improved since then wouldn't you say. Very little money around those days, weeks wage was only about 15 quid a week...lol
