This was at the show today,and I lost count of how many people stopped and said 'I used to have one of those!'.
This one was restored to be pretty much as new.I'd forgotten just how tiny they were.
When we were young one of my mates had one and fitted drop handle bars on it and ripped the pedals off,then it got passed down to another of my mates and he fitted a 65 bore kit.It used to heat seize at regular intervals,and he had to wait for it cool down and off it would go again.A load of them decided to go to the beach one evening (around a 40 mile journey)......it took them 3 hours.
The first taste of freedom to many,and one that will always have a special place in peoples hearts.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
