Ex-Roger Marshall fairings and stuff for sale.
I received this email from a guy looking to sell:
Sorry to bother you, I wondered if you might be able to help me find a home for some classic TZ body work I have.
Back on the 70's here in the UK my father was close friends with a racer you may have heard of named Roger Marshall, so close in fact that Roger ended up marrying my auntie Jane.
Anyhoo many of Rogers race bikes were build on and around our farm. One such bike (see attached picture) went on to be quite successful.
The reason for the email is, my parents are currently in the process of moving house and in an out building my father has found not only 2 sets of fairings for the pictures bike, with all the original paint and stickers but a front mudguard and a seat unit as well as some old magazines from the time with Roger and the bike on the front cover.
I realise you are and Aussie website but I'd really like to see these go to someone who appreciates them or maybe is building a tz and are looking for original parts.
Perhaps you have some contacts here in the UK that might be interested.
I'm looking for all the help I can get at the minute.
Obviously I'll send you some pictures of what we have and their condition should you feel it necessary.
