Bikers outside the Ace CafÃ¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½, North Circular Road - Photograph
- The Ace Caf on the North Circular Road was one of the most popular haunts for the 'Ton-Up boys'. Arriving on their motorbikes, rockers would meet up at this caf and others to mend their bikes, play rock-n-roll music on the jukeboxes and socialise. Record racing was one thrill at the Ace Caf. Bikers would put on a record from the jukebox and race each other to a chosen place and back before the record ended.
