It Was Used For Press Photography By None Other Than The 5Th Earl Of Lichfield (Later Lord Lichfield). Cousin To The Queen. Royal Photographer And One Of The Most Famous Photographers Of The Day. Who Was Also A Keen Motorcyclist. He Was Commissioned For Photographic Work For Bmw Cars When They Asked Him To Do The Press Photography For The New R90S.

A Framed Copy Of A Period Advert And 2 Of The Press Photos Featuring The Bike Are Included In The Sale. He Kept The Bike For 7 Years Until 1981 When It Was Then Registered To A Lady In Chelsea For The Next 8 Years.
