"I used to have a black Bantam Major," said Eddie, and promptly climbed onto my D7 to get the feel of it. "Ah, just like old times!"
We talked for sometime about Bantams and the old days, and I discovered Eddie used to be a speedway fan and often went to the Firs stadium in Norwich.
"I'll used to ride my Major like a speedway bike," he told me. "In the winter, if I hit ice, I'd put my foot down and slew across the road from bank to bank !"
"Bent my forks once," he continued, "but straightened them with a crowbar!" Just like Eddie!
Then it was time to let them get on with some work and, to their amazement, Little Willie started first kick! Picture shows Eddie sitting on the D7 and Hughie standing next to him.
