Re: a popular innovation

The first Skerries 100 was held on July 6, 1946. That may have been the Leinster 100. There was road racing in Tallaght before the war but I don't know what name it ran under.

'cept for the bloke at the back
wonder how he felt when they told him what department he'd be in

Does it leak... a little... OK, that's not too bad

Re: bsa factory tour

great stuff in fairness, real old innocent times, no wonder quality was poor, most of them bikes were knocked together by blokes with hammers, experience told em how hard to hit - but what were they doing to get the experience!!!!
brilliant videos tho.
