Biography: Age 26. Francis Reynolds is a motor cycle dealer from Middlesbrough. He entered the 1957 350 c.c. Newcomers' race, but crashed at Windy Corner on the fast morning's practice and was a non-starter in the race itself. In the 1958 Junior Manx Grand Prix he retired owing to mechanical trouble, but in 1959 he finished 18th in the Junior, winning a replica. Lastt year he retired in the Junior, but came home 15th in the Senior, at 88.28 m.p.h., with another "Rep." Francis tells us that his Norton is an ex-Dave Chadwick machine, prepared by Reg Dearden, and that his Ajay is the 1960 model which he rode in last year's Junior Manx, and which has not been raced since. For this year the valve spring mountings been modified.
