We won!

The Parilla 175 we supported won the Classic Bike of the Year competition at the Excel bike show yesterday: this is CB editor Hugo Wilson presenting the cheque for a thousand guineas (£1,050 - a guinea was a pound and a shilling) to Parilla owner John Crookes. Even the runners up felt John deserved the prize (second was a bathtub Triumph, third a home made V3 stroker) and Hugo didn't disagree when I said the best bike won. Congratulations to John and the discerning readers of CB: plus all of those who voted by email - it's what wins these things. John's story is in issue 7 of Benzina which will be mailed out this week.
