The picture BELOW was taken in the car park of RIVIERA LIDO HOLIDAY CLUB Now a very large housing estate at Pagham(near Bognor Regis)West Sussex July 1960. If you look closely there is pile of dirt by my feet,it was the result of what they call nowdays an incident! About a mile from the camp I took a bend a shade too fast. mounted a bank and went through a horse chestnut fence and parted company with the Zundapp. I ended up on my back on top of someone’s prize rhubarb laughing!! So I knew I was ok! It would have been a differant story a few months later ,as the chestnut fence was replaced with a six foot high brick wall! My first lesson learnt. Also I am glad to say the Zundapp wasn’t damaged, and it went on to give me an utterly reliable bike and much pleasure for the next 18 months. Unknowingly at that time , the little Zundapp had instilled in me a liking for German motorcycles, which is still with me almost fifty years later.
Found this Riviera Lido Brochure,50 years ago, the surrounding area was only open countryside,now its a housing estate of about 1500 homes!
