I started on a BSA bantam off road but my first road bike was a Matchless 250 CSR, now lets see if anyone knows what one of them is.
Whoa! I had pictures of the Matchless on my bedroom wall, and the AJS equivalent. Christ, I feel old now. Ended up buying a Royal Enfield Crusader Sports and then a Gold Star 500. Real bikes - nearly killed me though, I spent 6 months in Croydon General Hospital after an unfortunate meeting with a Mk 1 Consul.
Biking days - over, period, but the '60s's was a great time to bike, no speed limits, very few cars and plod couldn't catch you until they got the Daimler Darts.
