Remembering Jack Plowright

Jack was a gentleman, very ‘old school’. The motorcycle shop was the bigger of two in Trowbridge though I have no photographs of it.

The lads used to go in there. I remember one ordering a Velocette Thruxton but it never materialised so he bought a 650SS instead which served him well.

I used to go in to chat to him and was very taken with the ‘Norton’ mat he had outside his office. I tried to cadge it off him but he said ‘Heather, if I ever close down you may have that mat’. It is now in our hall in Bradford, thanks Jack.
