The good old days?

A mottley crew heads off across Europe, in 1953. (Pic is copyright)

It was the Summer of 1953 (the year the Indian Springfield factory closed its doors) when a chap called Geoffrey Gander, and a few mates, set off on a European holiday on their motorcycles.

This lovely tale is worth a scan when you get a spare moment – mostly for the pictures. No Indians in the group, but for V-twin fans there’s an SS100 Brough Superior, plus (shock, horror! – Guido) a couple of Sunbeams.
