Name The Rider


Picture 1: Photo courtesy of Dave Rowland.

We don't know who this is or when it was taken (He's not a Newcastle Rider). Included because it is a great action shot.  The girder forks were standard on older bikes so either this is a 1950's shot, or the bike was a few years old and the photo was taken during the '60's Send me an e-mail if you can identify the rider. dantodan@btopenworld.com

Update: 

Sir:
I am on the sports desk at the South London Press, SW16. Re the
unidentified legtrailer on your web-site. I am certain this is the old New
Cross (south London) rider George Newton. He rode for Crystal Palace and
New Cross pre-war, then from 1948 at New Cross, Fleetwood, Walthamstow and
St Austell. He was later on mechanical staff at Bristol.

 Thanks John for the identification.
