More on Tom’s 1911 Triumph

You may have seen the article by Paul Gander on the restoration of the 1911 Triumph that had been owned by his grandfather, Tom Gander, which is included on our “Links to the Past” page.

Paul has now sent us a picture of the bike in a 1947 edition of “Motor Cycling”, being ridden by a SK “Keith” Rolfe from Cowbeech. “Maybe a relative?” asks Paul.
