Found under the stairs ...

Earlier in the year I had visited Steve Saunders unit and noticed a Bultaco tucked under the stairs that take you up to his shop area. Steve told me it was his Dad's old bike and that he would be fetching it out soon for some loving attention... and here it is.

... Steve tells me that it is a 1972 250 Bultaco in a Sammy Miller Hi-Boy frame, with Rickman wheels.

His father, Dennis Saunders, won the Greybeards trial of that year on this machine, beating Sammy Miller in the process.
