john cooper, derby boy, i wish i had been there in 1971 when johnny cooper beat ago at mallory park, bsa versus the mv, sadly i wasn't, i know load's of people who claim they were there but, my old man was a despatch rider in ww2 and after that he never wanted to have anything to do with bikes again, i can remember nicking copies of mcn out of southgate secondary school library and sticking pictures on my bedroom wall, i can remember getting tyres for my bikes at john's place and looking at the yamsel and his other race bike's in awe, respect due, old mooneye's rule's......
