we used to have a bike spares place twickenham called the graveyard.. in days when despatch riding much more prolific up london, it was indispensable.. used to do their own enamel badges, wish had bought one for cut off now - tho only went a few times with mates…
ah had a look and this came up, isn’t it - but they did sell biker badges, think this is ace of clubs which was a little bike group… think the angels objected to them having a skull as part of their logo
maybe i did have a patch from there, motorcycle freedom machine which just about summed it up..
yep still got my cutoff with so many badges and patches, about time they had museum display… did start one at brighton but there must be thousands of suchlike all over country and it’s a shame to bury all that culture and social history - then again government didn’t like their free-thinking, were more outspoken than most people of those times.. tended to be honest and fair, open minded and thought outside the box, maybe cos of all that air rushing into bod - good for the brain.
so they invented heavy crash helmets that maybe damaged the neck, a lot of bikers get fibromyalgia now.. were also talking of leg protectors like a half-drainpipe on bike which could snap legs in an accident, stoopid idea eh?
na can’t find my patch anywhere, was a flying eagle with text top and bottom
here’s an amusing one, tongue in cheek, honest guv…
