About the Author

Rinsey Mills has owned AC sports cars, both pre-war and post-war, for forty years. He has restored some and raced others. His books include Original AC Ace and Cobra and Essential AC Cobra.

Rinsey's’ first motorcycle was a derelict BSA Empire Star that presented itself as a more grown-up alternative to Meccano – he should have stuck with the latter, as for him, at that time, the bike was too far gone. A couple of years later, shortly after his sixteenth birthday, he proudly fastened a pair of L-plates on £20-worth of 1954 DMW trials bike and was off. Since then he has owned and ridden many machines. Some he’d sooner forget about while others, like the road registered AJS 7R that he did many fast and reliable miles on in the mid-’70s, he still regrets parting with. Unlike many of his peers he never transferred to modern bikes and happily admits he has little interest in anything post-1970, preferring the character and what some would see as the quirkiness of older machinery. He currently has a 1950 BSA B32A and a 1956 Norton Dominator 88 on the road.
