    ------------------------------

    From MOTORING CLASSICS | SPRING 2014 Cocooned in their air-bagged cars, it
    must be difficult for today’s teenagers to relate to the ton-up kids of the ‘50s.
    They’d gratefully missed out on WWII, but were born into austerity
    and desperately craved some actin.

    Then along came credit – probably not enough to fund four wheels but maybe
    sufficient for two. Films such as ‘The Wild One’, though largely banned in
    the UK, fuelled the desire for rebellious riding on roads still gloriously devoid
    of an overall speed limit. Add the new-fangled rock ‘n’ roll music and teenage
    hormones to the mix, and you’d got the basis for a major explosion!

    The infamous Ace Cafe has hosted

    just about every type of road user in its time. Now, with related operations
    in China, Finland, Germany, Japan and the USA, this iconic
    brand apparently knows no bounds.

    Where did the Ace come in? Simple – it was on a fast section of road tailor-made for
    racing, was open when other cafes were closed, and had rock ‘n’ roll
    permanently on tap. Yes, it’s not surprising that clean-living, middle-
    aged motorcyclists gave the place a wide berth in the ‘50s or that Mods
    avoided it like the plague in the ‘60s, but a lot of us secretly wish we’d been
    involved.

    First came the trucks .....The first cafe to adorn the site was
    opened by entrepreneur Vic Edenborough in March 1938 as a
    truck stop for the newly-created North Circular road. Open 24 hours a day
    with the capacity to feed 100 drivers at a time, and such mod cons as ‘central
    heating and toilets for both ladies and gentlemen, complete with hot and cold
    running water’, it was an instant success.

    So much so that Edenborough

    promptly added a garage and filling station alongside. Unfortunately, just
    two years later the nearby railway yards drew the attention of the Luftwaffe, who missed their target but hit the cafe instead. Undeterred, Edenborough ultimately replaced the building with a
    bigger, better one that at one stage was a mix of cafe and restaurant, employed
    25 staff and served as many as 2,000 meals a day.

    The workshop made parts for Handley Page during the war and Ace folklore
    recalls that John Wyer of Le Mans Aston Martin, GT40 and Porsche 917
    fame briefly operated there after hostilities had ceased. Another rumour
    suggests Colin Chapman may have carried out machining on the premises
    around the time he was constructing the Lotus MKI in nearby Muswell
    Hill.

    Whatever, the early ‘50s were
    undoubtedly the heyday for the Ace
    first time around and by the late-‘60s, when motorways had drawn much of
    the lorry traffic away from the North Circular and speed limits and the law
    in general had put the brakes on the rockers, the venue went into a steady
    decline, and served its last plate of egg and chips on November 4, 1969.

    Then came Wilsmore.
    Born in 1957, Mark Wilsmore was a shade too young to experience the
    rocker era firsthand, but has clearly always been one at heart. He couldn’t
    wait to get his first bike, though soon found owning them was one thing and
    staying on them apparently quite another – ‘my brother reckons I’ve
    spent five years of my life in hospital through motorcycle crashes’! In 1979
    he joined the mounted police and admits his younger colleagues took the
    mickey out of him riding a classic British bike to work clad in traditional
    leathers. However, he had no problem linking up with like-minded souls
    away from work and fell into the role of ‘Mr Organiser’ of trips
    to The Dutch TT, Bol d’Or etc.

    Though familiar with the Ace as the tyre depot it had become, he had no
    recollection of its cafe days but, as soon as a fellow member of the West Middlesex
    Triumph Owners Club pointed out that Autumn 1994 marked the 25th Anniversary
    of the venue’s closure - ‘I knew there should be a reunion, and I should be the one
    to organise it’. There was and he did, and a staggering 12,000
    motorcyclists attended.

    Clearly
    the Ace meant much to a lot of enthusiasts and so began a protracted
    project to purchase the site and resurrect the iconic cafe, which finally
    came to fruition in September 2001.

    These days there are some 10 bike and 20 car events each month – ie
    something every day except December 25. The Ace is now arguably the mecca
    for every car and bike enthusiast – in fact you simply don’t qualify as one
    until you’ve been there at least once! See www.ace-cafe-london.com re the
    events and http://www.acecafeshop.com/products/376 for more about the
    history.
