H & W Warner were motor engineers located at Otley Road Garage, 74 Otley Road.

The photos were donated by Keith Charles Skinner who told us he had recently purchased an old Yamaha FSIE motor bike and the Warner stickers were on the speedometer and tail light.

I remember Warner's motorcycle shop very well indeed. They were agents for Capri Italian scooters and I bought my Capri 80 from them - in red and white. I had to put up with a lot of harmless banter from my friends as the registration number was 1531 YG - and I got it the day the famous Russian Yuri Gagarin went into space. Although only half the price and power of the famous scooters - Vespa, Lambretta etc - it was a fine machine and carried two adults without a whimper, and was totally reliable. I did however nearly fall off it when collecting it from Warners - in front of a bus shelter full of intending passengers - I had a long experience of riding motorcycles but a scooter was like sitting on a dining chair with nothing between the knees for balance..
