  2. Hi Brian,I started in 1946 and left in 49 when my father died,i lived on the Littledale estate at the time,mrs Reynolds daughter was in school at the same time as i was,she went on in later life to run her own dancing school. When i saw the old school on Wednesday i was like you amazed to see how small it was looks no bigger than a garage.it will be sad when it has gone,it will be interesting to see what they build on such a small site.i will install skype and perhaps we can talk.if you have a skype address.speak soon Regards Jeff

  5. I remember using a sixty tooth chainring and 12 tooth rear sprocket giving me a gear of i think of 135 inches,i rode it home to Handsworth i wound it up going through the traffic lights at the bottom of handsworth hill, and overtook a bus got almost to the top of the hill before the gear got the better of me. happy days.i remember john mapplebeck who used to own pennine cycles in the leeds area used to come over to race.
