Talk about first up best dressed, i think these 2 oversleped. Is anyone admitting to being relation to them or even knowing them. The photo was taken at Booths Brow. Not sure if their locals but one of them has got his bike clips on.

Another good clear photo janice, the guy on the left looks like the hitman, and the one on the right looks like his boss, but don't think they would get far on their bikes lol.

Hi Janice, they are both wearing bike clips, what year was this taken? I am not going to even hazard a guess as to who they are. I love all these old pictures though..

Hiya, did'nt like to say they looked like 2 right cowboys (who'd forgot their guns ha ha). Perhaps their horses were tied up in Pig St. lol. Photo taken in the 30's, i only noticed after i had uploaded it Janet that they both had bike clips on.

Ste, hope that remark doesn't come back to bite you.. The one wearing the glasses looks vaguely familiar.. Wish I knew what year it was..

With them eyes, if they had guns strapped to their waists, we'd all better run ! No offence to the lads Janice.

They look like North Ashton mafia to me.

Janice. The shorter guy in this photo. Is he not the same guy who is sat on the Norton motorbike on your other photo?

You could be right Karen, but i think the chap on the motorbike looks older, and the shorter of the two looks to have darker hair. Might never know who they are but we've had a laugh anyway.
