    It's funny isn't it, on reading the original post I thought "yes I've
    been watching that one and wanting it!" Though to be honest when it
    went beyond 50 quid I lost interest.

    But as to the above reaction, I have much the same when I see some of
    the late 70's, early 80's stuff that gets "ooh'ed" over. It makes it
    fun when we all have a common interest, but such widely varying ideas
    of what is "good".

    Thus spake Platypus unto the assembled multitudes:
    A mate of mine would have gone all misty-eyed over this, because he had one
    in the mid 1970s. He had gone up in the world, because this was an upgrade
    from an Ariel 3. Even rode all the way from Sussex to Cornwall on it for a
    camping trip. Exhaust was held on by a length of wire tied to the engine
    (the exhaust clamp thread had long since disappeared).

    However one icy winter's day, just for a laugh on the way home from the
    pub, he decided to ride the bike across a frozen village pond, but
    encountered some thin ice in the middle....

    He managed to rescue the bike (just) but it was never quite the same after
    that, having briefly run underwater and sucked in dirty pond water.

    Unfortunately said mate has just emigrated to New Zealand, so not much point
    telling him about it ;-)
