Nigel Clark was raised in a family wherein motorcycles were never far away. As a young man, his dream machine - a Norton Commando Interstate - was always beyond his financial reach, so he set about restoring and rebuilding inexpensive 'basket case' projects until eventually he could afford the Commando. His day job as an architect took him into the outbuildings and sheds of clients, where he discovered, bought, restored and sold countless machines, all the while learining specific details of the different marques. A serious road accident on the Isle of Man left him partially disabled, but this did not dent his enthusiasm for old British motorcycles, and indirectly opened a door to a change of career - a move into classic motorcycle journalism. Since leaving this sphere of work, he continues to restore bikes, but invariably sells on his restorations, thus giving someone else the pleasure of a restored classic - and returning yet another British classic motorcycle to the road.
