Comedian, Actor, Philanthropist and Television Host

I think my favorite Vintagent story is the piece about the Blue Bike and Marty Dickerson; it’s about a working class guy trying to make something happen, a human story, not just about the motorcycles themselves.  I’ve talked with Marty before, and of course I have a lot of Vincent memorabilia, like a bunch of Rollie Free’s trophies.

I also like the road test of the 3-wheel Brough Superior, as it’s the only account I’ve read of someone actually riding the thing! There are all these crazy stories from the day about George Brough riding one backwards around Piccadilly Circus, but those stories are 80 years ago!
