To answer the age old question, where is he now, we went to the Telford Off Road Show at the Telford International Centre on  16/17 February and bumped into Colin Boniface who worked for Bultaco importers, Comerfords at Thames Ditton in Surrey.

Boniface turned 60 years of age in December 2018 and felt it was time to take in a few classic shows, having come of age!

Trials Guru’s John Moffat was photographed when Colin and he met up on the Saturday afternoon and reminisced about when Colin rode Comerfords prepared Bultaco Sherpas first as a youth rider in Surrey Schoolboy Trials Club and then the Witley club back in the 1970s.

The name Reg May came up in the conversation several times.
