Angle of Attack
The Forde Dexta
When his father traded in the family Fordson Dexta in the late seventies Vincent Forde from Sligo thought that was that. However, after an almost forty-year absence, it’s been tracked down and restored to look just like it did when bought new in ‘62.
Longford’s Grand Marshall
Restoration is all about the detail, and detail is what Fred Hennessy is about. Fred and his remarkable machines have been featured on these pages before, so at this stage he could merit the title of serial restorer. Not a man to content himself with getting something right, it has got to be perfect, even if that means going to extraordinary lengths. The result is a bike that is considerably better than when it left the NSU factory in Neckarsulm, Germany more than sixty years ago.
