Great photo from the fifties or sixties of a wall of death bike and rider. The guy looks comfortable with the bike so it would be a good guess that he was a wall rider. Anyone out there recognise him?
Rigid framed BSA A7s were the post war British bike of choice for the wall after an Indian. They seem to have been used at several different walls, notably with Tornado Smith at Southend and at Margate. I've seen pictures with the BSA logo painted on to the wall itself so presumably BSA were sponsoring walls at one time.
Any further info on the picture gratefully received.
