      Very cool image. I like the grain with the B&W and how it captures an era that's not quite so current. Very nice.

      Taken a long time ago (1973?) not far from Cadbury's, when I was at art college.. It was my brother in law's bike.

      hmm i was born then. i grew up on stirchley but hung around bournville and surrounding area. my dad worked at birmingham auto cycle over tipton way. when bsa closed they carried on. still going now as far as i know

      Amazing co-incidences, my dad worked at Cadbury's then Hunt's foundry in Cotteridge. I had a flat above the launderette opposite Stirchley School on Pershore Road for a couple of years too.. I remember Birmingham Motorcycles down by the Cine-bowl and the little place opposite that did classic second hand bikes and went on to do Reliants, my mate bought an old M21 there that we spent a whole summer holiday restoring... long time ago - valve lifters and manual advance and retard... I think he also got his Matchless twin from there, great days. I also remember Vale Onslow's, a great place for British bikes, it was all Tritons and Tribsas in those days and a few die-hards with Royal Enfields and Velos..

      i remember the bike shop and the reliant shop. my dad had an m21 (emma) combo. did loads of rallies on her including dragon rally and snowmans rally. i was always in the laundrette with me mom too.. my mate neil (feaces) worked at hunts until it closed.
      vale onslows did the 1st mot on the chop. still a proper bike shop and they still treat you with the same respect.
      yep i grew up around stirchley (beilby road ), bournville and cotteridge. there was no grey area in them days. i miss birmingham loads even though where i live is brilliant its just not the same.
      any way, would the railway bridge be in the background of your photo by any chance and do you know if the bonnie is still about..

      The bridge is about half a mile down the road.. no idea what happened to the bike, they had a bit of a crash on it up the Lickey's (spews) as far as I remember and moved onto American cars after that I think.
