Ronald Byron’s Suzuki Burgman Outfit


Ron has a disability affecting his legs and this means he often has to rely on the use of a wheelchair.  He has a ‘step-through’ 400cc Suzuki Burgman but the transportation of his wheelchair was causing a problem. 

As luck would have it those clever chaps at Charnwood Classic Restorations had a simple solution.  Ron now has a Watsonian ‘Flatbed’ sidecar fitted to the bike and he can now take his wheelchair with him.


Ron sent a nice thank-you card to the office containing the following note:


I would like to thank all staff and the committee at the NABD for awarding me the grant of £1000.


I would like to thank Jim at Charnwood Classic Restorations Ltd and his team for the excellent work they have done, also for keeping me well informed while the work was being done.


Thank you once again for giving me my freedom.


Best Wishes


Ron Byron
