Throwback Thursday – History of Jack Lilley – Part 3

Front_Cover_Issue_15Back 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 3rd instalment of this fascinating look at the history of Jack Lilley Ltd, in which Steve talks about his early days with the company, the increase in bike registrations of the early 70s and the decision to become agents for CZ/Jawa as well as Honda.

We’ll be publishing the final instalment next Thursday.  We hope you enjoy reading them.  If you missed the first 2 parts of the story, just click the links below:
