Sylvanus known as Syl Anderton was in business as a motor cycle dealer with his brother James or "Jim". The business known as Anderton Bros (Motor Cycles) Ltd operated from Bradford Street Bolton and was started in the 1930's. The business was unterupted by the second world war as both brothers had qualified as pilots before the war. Syl joined the ATS and James the RAF as a heavy bomber pilot. After the war the motor cycle business resumed and Syl competed in Isle of Man senior TT's between 1949 and 1952 riding Triumphs and Nortons as a privateer. James accompanied Syl at these races.
