Bradbury motorcycle & light vehicles 1936 onward

Recommended Posts

My cousin, Ray Stevenson worked for Dan Bradbury.

Probably started there around 1951, don't know just how long he was there.

Hi bullerboY

 

Sadly Ray passed away in November 2017. He had lived at Stalham in Norfolk for around 30 years. He was some guy, miss him dearly !

It would be in the early to mid 60s and I was with my father in a Morris 1000 van, we were waiting  behind a shiney new red scooter at the Wosternholme Road lights.  As he set off, he must have dropped the clutch too fast, the bike reared up, veered across the junction and smashed into the low wall of a front garden (house later demolished). We stopped to help and found that he had just collected his brand new scooter from Bradbury's.
