In addition to my replica race jackets I have a growing collection of original race jackets, period riding gear and classic speedway bikes that I display at shows, rallies, events and meetings around the country. My philosophy is to share my display with the public rather than hide it away in a personal collection.
Mannequins show how the riding gear has changed throughout the decades – from the black leathers, pudding basin helmets and gas goggles of the 1950’s; through the coloured leathers, Bell helmets and monkey masks of the 1970’s and 80’s; to the kevlar race suits of today.
My display also includes the bikes I remember from when I first saw speedway at Ipswich – a 1950’s Rotrax JAP; 1970’s 2-valve Jawa; and an early 1980’s Weslake.
The display is completed by a selection of rider leathers and race suits, original and replica race jackets, and other speedway memorabilia including period race posters. Photos taken from some of my show displays can be viewed in the Gallery section of the website.
If you are interested in having my display at your event or have any race jackets, leathers or other riding gear that I could add to my collection please get in touch.
