No idea, given the size of the photos, I was going on the petrol tank, emblem and lining is typical Triumph.

The top outfit is a Clyno. Do I get a bonus point for recognising the National Motorcycle Museum carpet ?

 

I think that the bike on the left of the second picture is a Rudge.

 

Pretty sure that there is at least one Triumph Model H in picture 3 but I can't see their characteristic front fork spring, nor the leather strap that most riders fitted to hold the whole lot together when the spring broke.

Gold star for recognising the Clyno, plus extra for recognising the carpet!

They are Triumphs from what I know working with the 3rd South Midlands. ;-)

A Gold Star ! Wait tell I tell my kids in the morning "Daddy's been given a Gold star" They'll be jealous as hell :-D Unless the oldest one thinks it's a BSA Gold Star and says "Not another motorbike ?" :whistle:

Hiya,

The bike at the left of photo N°2 looks like a Rudge Multi, but I wouldn't bet my Morris on it ;-)

Merry Christmas to all,

Stef
