* Can you IDENTIFY ANY OF THESE BIKES?

People send me old photos of bikes all the time. Sometimes just to share them, and sometimes trying to figure out what kind of bike it was. Now I'm sharing them with you. And unless I tell you what kind of bike it is, it's open for your input.
ABOVE & BELOW: Lee Barnard sent us this amazing pictures with the following description:
"All I can tell you about these photos is that the Norton was taken on Boxing Day 1920 outside the Kursaal Amusement Park in Southend on Sea; and the group shot was taken on January 6th 1921 outside The Minerva Public house that was next door to the Kursaal. I have been told that the Norton was no more than a few weeks old, according to the license plate."

ABOVE & BELOW: Richard Schofield sent this photo. It was taken in Derby, Derbyshire England, I'm guessing early 1960s. He wanted me to ID the bike. It's a "Bathtub Triumph" (1958-1966), either a 350cc 3TA Twenty-One or a 500cc 5TA Speed Twin. That's a BMC Mini in the far right, and I don't know much about busses. I zoomed in on the bike, below to show a little more detail.

CAN YOU IDENTIFY THIS BIKE?
Owner Adrian Barnes from Australia explains:
"Way back when I was a teenager I had the bike in the photo. (this was about 1953). I have no idea what it was. I have searched the internet for various photos but nothing comes up as a likeness.
Volunteers at the local motor museum have suggested –
1 it probably had a Villiers motor
2 it may be a James
3 it may be a Sun
4 don’t know
I apologise for the lack of detail – both info and photographic quality. Any suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated."


So, EMAIL US if you think you can ID this bike. Use its Date of Submission, below, as reference for your answer.
