Interesting 1/2 hour. Thanks for posting the link.

I did find another link to the same video.  The only difference is this one you can click the full screen icon.  Blowing it up to full screen makes it easier for my old eyes to see. :)

Good documentary. Many of the black and white scenes in it, the guy and girl on Triumph 21 and at the Ace cafe are from the movie, Leather Boys, a 1964 flick loosely about the cafe racers of the day. Pretty good flick. The girl is Rita Tushingham, a pretty popular English actress who made several movies in her long career, including a role in Dr Zhivago.

From the web somewhere:

Quote
Every year there is a 'Leather Boys Run' . This a ride (on classic British bikes of course) to some of the film locations WITH Colin Campbell , the lead actor who played 'Dodgy':
