After a few months they let me work the sales floor, which gave me an opportunity to earn a little more. The main line was Kawasaki, but we also sold CZ, Penton and Maico. I raced a little Penton Six Days. Life was good.

I bought a lot of parts from Grand Prix Cycles, and maybe you. I recall Ian gave me a new frame for my PUCH 125. I did not even buy it from them. It was a good shop to deal with.
