He thinks it did get in BSH but not as a featured bike for some reason, maybe a readers ride or summat?

Mick unfortunately is no longer with us, he died in a bike crash in about 87 he thinks.
Hi this is Jay mick's nephew, He passed away 31st Oct 1992 after a car crash left him on life support. I'm busily trying to locate the bike which was called "scallywag" i can get a few pics if that would help. If anyone can help at all I would be honoured.
Thanks Guys,
Rubber side down!

It's very touching that you guys are still talking about it all these years later. he threw it together in two weeks in a garden shed with parts "borrowed" from his dad's works.

Thanks for the pic Pagan, I've only got two pics of the bike. Any others would be massively appreciated. Found the site by typing mick fish wigan biker into google lol. I'm doing a little digging and trying to find out where the bike ended up, I've made it a goal to get it back in the family. I can see it being scrapped so i'm guessing it's in someone's garage somewhere as one of those projects for "next year." fingers crossed anyway!

... well that was way too easy to find; being organised from time to time - sometimes - pays off...

Anyhow, here she is - pic was taken on a 110 camera 22 years ago, hence the appalling quality. If you want a copy I do have the negatives, can send to you to see if a photo lab can get any improvement in quality, PM me if you want me to send it.
