"Send 6p for 24 page catalogue"

Rummaging around in the bottom of boxes, looking for old photographs for this thing I found three old copies of Motor Cycle Scooter and Three Wheel Mechanics which I found originally in the attic of a house in the South Wales valleys about 15 years ago.
I love these old mags for the articles about how to tune your Lambretta or exploded diagrams of the Norton ES2 engine, and for the adverts, which rarely get a look in online.

Anyway for the bikers coming on here, here are a small selection of what I'm babbling about.
I'll post some more another time. Let me know if you want to read any of the articles on the cover...

I'll take a pair of those swept back pipes and a sports dolphin please

Well that's done amazing things for that Royal Enfield 250

one for the Ducatisti

Not sure I'd survive riding that for 24 hours...

mmm I'll take a jacket in yellow and some blue leather trousers
Hell's Angels patch anyone? remember your punctuation, though

This wouldn't look out of place today. but Square exhaust pipes?
