New bookcase triggers a nostalgic bike episode!!!
As you might imagine, sorting books stopped immediately and has yet to re-commence as I leaf through these wonderful documents which have triggered so many memories.
Before we finish these musings, I also noticed that the headlight bulb was a 6 volt 30/24 watt Lucas item. How we found our way anywhere in the dark without colliding with large, solid objects is probably testament to the ummmmm... modest performance of the bike and comparative lack of traffic rather than the headlight actually being effective. Still, we lived through it all and are wiser (a debatable proposition) for having owned early British bikes!
Wonder what else I'll find in these fabulous books with their charmingly optimistic instructions?
