PF means Peugeot Freres. (brothers). I think it's used on the early motors. The early Nortons used them. Nev

Re Fixing and riding

Steve Are you sure that was the right place you went and not a bit of time travel.The snow scenes looked like my old school in the winter of 1962 prefabs and snowdriffs

It's does look like it but somehow it looked different Paul. I suppose they just copied it.

I got back to Heathrow late Friday night and thankfully the Yamaha started and got me home.

On the day i visited the motor museum I was also taken to a railway museum. Here's a few steam locomotives they had on display.
They certainly looked stunning in the cold sunshine

I was more then a bit nervous about riding my Nephews Yamaha. Nothing to do with the different controls or the power, what frightened me most was would I like it too much!. Could it turn me away from my Ariel. I needn't have been worried. :D At first I thought, this is very smooth, that was till it got to around 65mph. Then the buzzz started through the seat and handlebars, it felt like a dentists drill. Clearly my Ariel has a superior sort of vibration.
Anyway I had a job today at the old EMI record factory in Hayes. Near Heathrow airport.
They are turning the old factory into offices. The canteen wall has the whole wall covered in old singles and their covers to make a large display.
