Norman George Fry

Today we had the pleasure of Norman George Fry visiting the store.

At just 16 years old he worked in the workshop department at Fowlers. His colleague Jack was able to identify a problem with a motorcycle over the phone just by having the receiver held near the engine. He also told us how Mr Fowler would pop his head around the workshop door at the end of the day and if there was anything Mr Fowler could do to help anyone, he would, within reason!

62 years since he first rode a motorcycle, Norman George Fry came to Fowlers today to purchase his latest bike, a Yamaha SR400, “the perfect blend of old and new”.
