He comes to me one day and says would I and Len look at a Royal Enfield he wants to buy..
Chiswick had E&S motors Enfield dealers..so lunch hour we duely went over to see the bike ..it was in good order a 125 Flea almost the same as pic in quiz.. they wanted about a tenner for it which wasn't bad as there was a slight dent in the tank..
He bought it...first week of running it there were things he would ask us as it was his first bike and a learner..one lunch hour sitting outside talking bikes he says to Len how can I get that dent out of the petrol tank?
We both get up and inspect ..it was a perfect round dent next to the filler cap. No paint damage at all..Len my mate says that's not a dent you silly bugger.. it's an ashtray.. and convinced him it was an extra..
We could be cruel to apprentices in those days
