The "Geoff Duke" Royal Enfield Cafe Racer!

Submitted by the indispensable Dave Innola! For more on the very talented racer please see this ENTRY HERE. Great stuff!

Found this great photo of Mr. Duke in action "back in the day" on a Gilera at the Isle of Mann with the following caption:

Douglas, Isle of man: Geoff Duke, riding an Italian Gilera (493) round the bend at Governor's Bridge during the Senior TT. Duke smashed all records to win his third Senior TT in 2-43-49 4/5 at an average speed of 97.93 MPH.
13 June 1955
