Ossie Kettle shares his memories of his first ever motorbike.

Ossie Kettle purchased this bike in 1978 at an age when many were buying their first car. And it is still around today.

Submitting his photo through our user-led iwitness service, he said: “I bought this bike for £325, but it is probably worth a bit more now.

“We have been on many trips to Snetterton and various other events over the years together.

“I still have the bike (although it is in need of some TLC at the moment). Perhaps that is something to do when I finally retire.”
