Seeing the name Cotton recently reminded me that back in 1963 I bought my first motorbike. It was a 1953 Cotton Cotanza. It was pre Villiers days and was powered by a 250cc Anzani engine. In those days they mainly produced engines for power boats. I remember it being a quite lively twin with siamese pipes. It took me for many many pleasant miles until a brake failure took me into a brick wall. Sadly, bye bye 'COTTY'.
