Interesting to see a snippet of Sammy Miller as his museum is local to me and he's one of my customers as we print his motorcycle books, went in to see him last week as it happens.

Here's a still from the documentary Ackers and Brian mentioned, I'm not familiar with the older models but it looks like the tank logo could be MV but then again it could just be a BSA bantam. Any one know for sure.

I can't see that program in the link as it appears it's just accessible to the folks in the UK?? Anyway, the pic looks more like it's an MV logo than a BSA logo, plus that tank shape doesn't look like the typical BSA curved ones....

Dunno what that is. Does he have the same logo on the sleeve of his Jacket?
