Hi, just seen this posting, I used to see Renee Bennett and her husband Howard Powell in the late 1960s, around Plaistow (east London), where they had there motorcycle shop. I'm not sure whether it is still going, but Howard moved the shop to East Ham. Renee was a fair rider,and was usually seen on a Greeves at that time, Howard rode either a Greeves Anglian, or a Bultaco. She was the daughter of a famous local car spares dealer, and gym owner, Wag Bennett. She was very much into keeping fit, and was very shapely.

Hi, just wanted to update the thread. Renee Bennett is still going strong and regularly visits her shop in East Ham (Howard Powell Motorcycles). Howard unfortunately passed in ‘03. We still have most of Renee’s trials bikes in our garage. As her granddaughter, it is fantastic to see that she is well-known in the trials world.
