  • 1987 Green Eco in 1988

    BBC TOP GEAR FF FILMING March-April 1988, UK

    In April 1988 Paul Blezard wrote and presented a ten minute Top Gear TV feature about the 80 year history of Feet First motorcycles from the 1909 Wilkinson to the the then-new Creasey Voyager and Peraves Ecomobile. There were three venues for the filming: 1) The National Motorcycle Museum, from which William Woollard introduced the whole programme sitting in the museum's Quasar. The NMM also housed the 212mph world record breaking Triumph Bonneville Streamliner which was also shown at the end of the programme; 2) The Science Museum Annexe at Wroughton Aerodrome near Swindon and 3) Winterthur, Switzerland, home of Arnold Wagner and his brainchild the BMW-powered Peraves Oekomobil (as it was then called).
    At Wroughton, which at the time housed the 1926 Avro Monocar, we gathered together some 16 FFs and other machines relevant to the theme including the unique 1954 Norton Kneeler or 'Silver Fish' and the then-new Honda Gold Wing 1500-6 and Yamaha FZR1000.
    The FFs included three Quasars, both Difazio CX500s, several Phasars and Pete Lawrence's half-completed Talbot-engined, Difazio-steered Delta 930. PNB

    Blez FF talk to EKAM

    A few photos from a presentation I (Paul Blezard) gave to the East Kent Advanced Motorcyclists at the Christmas 2013 meeting. The chief interest for most people here is probably the snaps of previous FF articles which I laid out for the talk. It was a reprise of the talk I gave to the IJMS conference in July 2013, using the same 75 images, but it lasted more than twice as long.
