    I’d assumed Daz wasn’t in the photo so had to look again! A great retro photo and lovely write-up. We do hold those old scooter shops in high esteem don’t we as they are a part of our early days in the scene? I have the same feelings for Rafferty Newman in Portsmouth!

      I bought a PK from Horner’and swapped it for a V90 a few months later at Smiths.
      There was another shop though, on Shudehill where the bus station is now, Alan Taylor. He also sold motorbikes but always had a nice selection of scooters.
