9th Major Nichols Memorial Ride, 11th May 2014 – Chaddersley Corbett, Worcestershire
Prize of place went to Emily whose immaculate MN was finished in her favourite colours: Mallard (the record holding steam locomotive) blue, champagne, her favourite drink and chocolate the favourite food. The frame was her wedding present from her husband, who had it refinished and fitted it out with top quality parts, beautiful! She says it is wonderful and now her husband is looking for one too.
Second was don’t give your bike to your son if he goes to college. It may return with a bad attempt at a shortened wheelbase. Fortunately repairable we think.
Thirdly, another gem made by Major for Wilsons of Birmingham and Sheffield in original finish in his Italia design with chrome. One of about 30 made for them of which only 2 are known to survive.
The weather held out and we had lunch at the local garden centre at Chaddesley Corbett. We chatted away there for a couple of hours. Thanks Alvin for organising an excellent and sociable event for us enthusiasts.
