My late brother did this course back in the late 60's. Also of interest is the Famous James motorcycle which is a civilianised version of the military James ML a lightweight air-transportable or para-dropped (in a special cradle) British army lightweight motorcycle. Some were, optimistically, dropped into Arnhem though few photographs survive to prove this. Many were landed on the D-Day beachheads and were used mainly by paratroopers or Drs.

Nice. I'm partly through the restoration of a 1952 James Cadet at the moment. Weird seeing this filming from 1955. Brings it home just how old the bike actually is!

Still working on my 1940 BSA, parts are not hard to find as 26, 000 were made during the war but they are damned expensive. Many dodgy Indian replica parts including girder forks as strong as a beer tin....

Good fun though isn't it. Gets a bit expensive at times unfortunately.
