I seem to remember him passengering for Charlie Freeman. He also raced the PATON [dohc twin] for a while. It was in his wifes posession when he was killed. It was a much sought after machine, I think Bill Smith was after it at the time. It would have been quite valuable even then, worth a FORTUNE now !!!!
