OUR old car spotters are renowned for their vehicle identifying abilities, so Peter Sotheran, of Redcar, would like their help in working out what motorcycles his father, Ken, used to have.

Ken, from the family firm of printers and stationers, was very proud of his bikes, which he had during the late 1930s/early 1940s, and appears to have won at least one award for them.

But what make were they?

Please email chris.lloyd@nne.co.uk if you can help.
