David Essex delighted workers at the Meriden motor cycle co-operative when he collected

David Essex delighted workers at the Meriden motor cycle co-operative when he collected on of the latest models from the factory. Women asked for autographs as David toured the factory before collecting a Bonneville 750. He had been at Coventry Theatre last night where he had played to a full-house. He said: " Most of the Japanese bikes ride like a car, but the Triumph machines still seem like motor bikes to ride, " " You can go anywhere in the world and people will be talking about these bikes made in Meriden. They re a joy to ride." Meriden have also produced a version for the police force.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from 1980, we see the legendary singer and heartthrob David Essex bringing joy to workers at the Meriden motor cycle co-operative. As he collected one of the latest models from the factory, women couldn't help but ask for autographs, completely starstruck by his presence. Before receiving his Bonneville 750, David took a tour around the factory where he was met with admiration and excitement. Just the night before, David had performed to a packed house at Coventry Theatre, showcasing his incredible talent as a musician. Reflecting on his experience with motorcycles, he shared that while most Japanese bikes ride like cars, Triumph machines still possess that true essence of riding a motorbike. He expressed how these bikes made in Meriden have gained worldwide recognition and people everywhere can't stop talking about them. It's worth noting that Meriden even produced a special version for police forces, highlighting their versatility and reliability. This snapshot captures not only an iconic moment in time but also showcases the intersection between celebrity culture and industrial craftsmanship. This print transports us back to an era when music icons like David Essex held immense influence over fans' hearts while celebrating British engineering excellence at its finest.
