Re: Triking Pilot's Challenge September [new season]

A Tri-fid! Good work!

Re: Huntingdonshire Trundle

Sadly, despite my previous indication to the contrary, I'm unable to join the run this time, Tony, due to being pre-booked into another event that weekend. Sorry.

Re: All British Car Meet

If you knew the Allegro, you'd be surprised there were even ten left!

They have gone down in UK legend for their appalling design, nonexistent build quality and of course the 'Quartic' (square to you) steering wheel.

And Vehicle Wiring Products offer a modular system of fuse and relay boards which can be used singly, in attached pairs or clip together into one lidded box which could neaten things up a bit.

Re: NEW OWNER - OLD MACHINE

Hi JFerg. I suspect we’re not the only ones with a Guzzi or two in the stable. The vintage item’s my old 1926 AJS Big Port. I swapped it for a different Vintage machine about ten years ago and have been missing it since then. It was a wonderful machine, with genuine 75mph performance, except when it...

Re: NEW OWNER - OLD MACHINE

That's the one, yes, lurking there at the back. The rather nautical wooden parcel rack gives it away. I think I have the almost identical photograph somewhere!

NEW OWNER - OLD MACHINE

Good morning to all from a new Triking owner. I’ve wanted one for many, many years and got as far as filling in an order form after visiting Tony in Marlingford back in the early ‘80s, but never took the plunge (built a Dutton Phaeton instead – more footspace).
