Just been talking to my dad and in 75 he bought a chain and sprockets for his suzuki T500 for £14 from Hadlers in Chelmsford. He was on £17 a week at the time.
He told his dad and he thought he had been done over so he went down there ranting and raving. It wasn't going his way so his dad threatend to get the Tax man down to go through there books  ;D needless to say my dad wasn't welcome there anymore  ;D ;D
