What groovy looking lads.....love the hair and the leathers..... :)
I remember seeing Joe Johnson's bike around UpHolland a lot, in the early 1970s.
Is he still around Mick? Never met the guy would be interesting...
i work with allan lomax i was stone mason with him he was only 19 when he died july 8th 1973 so sad
oh how nice to see a picture of Allan we went to beech hill school together.we were in the same class and sometimes sat next to each other. after we left school we would catch the same bus and walk down wallgate. he would go to his job and I would carry on farther down to my job. I always liked Allan and was really upset when he died I very often think of him and sometimes visit his grave when I go to the cemetry
Andrew Lomax - sorry Andrew, I don't really know anything about him, apart from the fact I used to see him passing through UpHolland on that bike in the '70s. A biker friend at the time told me who he was.
Great pic, but very sad, what happened to Alan Lomax.
You would see Joe around Upholland, He lived at Roby Mill.
I was Pal's with his Elder Brother John,(also a Biker) and didn't know Joe personally, only by reputation!!! but my Husband who is younger than I, knew him quite well.
John and I rode before the days of helmets. Happy days!
Yes Joan it was sad - my nan was never the same again unfortunately. The one that got away we think.
Joe is still around and well, still lives in Roby, still very much involved with classic bikes
Andrew, how nostalgic is this pic its beautifull it just captures that wonderfull time, so sad about allan,these lads just depict them days, wonderfull, I got married in 1971 age 20 we are still together now and have a son and a daughter and three grandchildren x love this pic x
I remember Allan Lomax wasn't he from Beech Hill?.I remember they all used to go to Newtown British Legion, Joe Bonnie was a Legend everyone in the biking circles knew him. Allan Lomax Head Stone is near my Mum & Dads at Ince Cemetery,, only 19 when he diedin 1973, Big Shock.
