Back in 1999, Jack Lilley Ltd was celebrating it’s 40th year in business and to mark this milestone, Steve Lilley wrote down his memories of the company’s early days and it’s progress throughout the 40 years. The result was a 4-part serial of stories which were published in the Jack Lilley magazine ‘The Trident’. We’ve pulled the magazines out of the archives, scanned the relevant pages and now bring you the 2nd instalment of this fascinating look at the history of Jack Lilley Ltd, in which Steve reminisced about some of his early bikes, including a 1956 Capriolo 125cc Sport, an ex-works Greeves 250 and a rather special ex-TT racer Norton.
We’ll be publishing the subsequent instalments every Thursday over the next 2 weeks. We hope you enjoy reading them. If you missed last week’s article, you can READ IT HERE.
