I only spoke to him a couple of times about the Vert a couple of weeks ago and never got the chance to nip up and see him, but he was a genuinely helpful bloke.
I'm sure his assistance and prescence around the tracks etc. will be sorely missed.
Deepest sympathies to his family, and I'm sure he's having a giggle at the Vert owners from wherever he now.
R.I.P. Mark.

Sorry to hear about Mark,

He rebuilt my engine a couple of times and as I have seen from others he was always willing to help you out with proven advise.

Shit, only just spotted this.
That's not fucking fair, Mark was a top bloke and a real gentleman. I had a lot of time for him. Both he a Suzie would take the time to talk to anyone and make them feel part of the crowd, which was one of their special talents.
Pass on my sympathies to Suzie please Phil.

I'll miss the big man.

Phil.. I dont want to appear callous.( and I apologise in advance if this is too selfish too soon). but do you have any idea what this means for the future of vert spares??? I take it Dirtybike was a one man band? so will there be anyone to take over?

Obviously have a vested interest with a broken one sitting in the garage although I realise that that's only minor compared to what the family are having to contend with..............

I miss him too.
I was his wife for two years and I never forgave myself for leaving him,I had known him since I was 9. I am now 51!! He was one hell of a bloke,we met by coincidence on what should have been our silver wedding,I told him i'd never forgiven myself, he told me I should, as he had. it was like he knew what was going to happen. I miscarried our child in 1980, he would have been called Paul. I sometimes sense them. I wish them well

This was a shock to me as I'd been searching for him for years. He was a very close, kind friend to me at school, and I was sorry we lost touch when I had to move away. I don't even have a photo of him. Good memories though.
