I went to sudell rd and moorland high school. i got into the mod scene in my teens thanks to taff. bought my first scooter at 16. A PK125 registered as a 50 it cost 100 quid bargain. first scooter rode was a lammy li150 which belonged to Mick Storey. I,m married to Lorraine, we have 5 kids between us. No tele in our house. ha. ha. I've been working as a steel erector for several years lost touch with scooter scene because of my job.
