Found this great photo of Mr. Duke in action “back in the day” on a Gilera at the Isle of Mann with the following caption:
Douglas, Isle of man: Geoff Duke, riding an Italian Gilera (493) round the bend at Governor’s Bridge during the Senior TT. Duke smashed all records to win his third Senior TT in 2-43-49 4/5 at an average speed of 97.93 MPH.
13 June 1955
I’m not sure about the actual model / history of this bike (anyone?) but I think this picture does a great job of capturing the flavor of a typical vintage racing scene. Hit’s all the right notes.. as they say. Thanks again to Dave Innola for the pics!
Thanks again to regular contributor Dave Innola for the great pics!
I need to get out to more swap meets… I see a few in there that I’d love to have for my Project -X . Thanks (or Tanks?) again Dave Innola!
A nice pair of 1921′s a Rolls Royce and a Brough. That’s just excellent!
A nice period roadtest article. Click on photos to enlarge.
There’s a certain “Steampunk
” quality to the gauges. I love it!
