Crikey - a purple (original version) Raleigh Chopper! I had one of those as a kid!
Impressive-looking Dursley Pedersen, too.

Bagpuss - Many thanks for the pictures link..some great images.

I liked the 'Hill Special' pics and also the Carlton 'International'.

Was the event well attended?

isn't that Carlton gorgeous. One of these days I'll be able to afford a Flyer but by then I'll probably be too decrepit to ride it ! :D

I think the weather forecast kept a good number of people away ,ie those who ride .Plus the high cost of Petrol did not help.

.I when up Friday with another CTC member from Derby.We had a strong tail wind all the way :P .Saturday Pm was wet. Sunday blowing a gale :shock: .Mrs bagpuss had driven up Friday Pm ,as I was displaying a bike on Saturday. Owing to the howling gale i bottled out riding home on Sunday .I don't think i would have got home till 23 00hrs.
