My Tiger Cub

As we moved back Matt made good on his promise for my sixtieth birthday and bought me a ‘basket case’, a 1961 Triumph T20 Tiger Cub (above see my pal Martin from ballroom dancing). This picture above is after much of a year and more’s effort.

I have to confess that it frightened me when I rode the Cub around Chinnor, the cars all appeared to be about to clip me and the road conditions on the near-side of carriageways was littered with potholes. So do be careful what you dream for!

Our fifth grandchild, Mylo
