Quote from Alan Bond himself how kindly responded on email :
“That’s great, Pete ! I know how hard it was to get all that stuff together. The bike looks really good and like a good rider as well. Many or most of the frames in use were postwar so don’t worry about that – it’s easier to get the back wheel off too. I like it !” Alan Bond
