The market place seems deserted, doesn't it? That's because the crowd were all behind the camera, having just admired the D1! I think it's not stretching the truth too much to say the sight of the motorbike - dating from the Festival of Britain year of 1951 - was a traffic-stopper!
The little D1 performed perfectly for the ride into town and back, until it arrived home again. Then the engine stopped and refused to start again. So, today, it's time to check the plug, points, condenser and anything else I can think of! riding the bike was QUITE an experience!
