Custom made Brompton on eBay UK

Very nice. A shame hard times have forced the guy who put so much ingenuity into it to sell it!

My heart belongs to Dahon. We can do the reunion though. One of my knees is now working, too, and Nigel Yellow Jersey is still alive, as is Diode100, whose bike I crashed. :-(

Finishing price for the beastly Brompton: 1140.

With the power invested in me by Her Majesty's Parks and Gardens Department, I hereby propose M. Ulleady Esq, as Chairman of the Hyde Park Folding Bicycle Society, for the forthcoming bicycling season.

All those in favour?

Seemingly not!

My Brompton (in standard boring black) is good to go and I am available for a resurrection of the Hyde Park Meet - Incorporating a pie shop might stimulate more interest.

Excellent. With the shiny Brompton now in the paws of its new and pecunious owner, we may attract more victims, er, wealthy patrons.

I'm up for a psin in the Park, we just need our Chairman elect to don the ermine of office, and brush the cobwebs off his unleaded Brommie.

I can bring the pies and my trusty Dahon. We can have a whip round for Sesame Crunch's air fare, volcanos permittin'.

Cripes. Didn't they have any with paint? And why has it got six wheels? Though Deore brake levers, I can aver, are quite the choice of champions.

Jolly nice. I'll bring you a can of Hammerite.

Any of you bounders up for a spin in Her Majesty's park soon?

I am me own boss and as long as I get a note from me mum can go out riding anytime...as long as I wear a vest! and watch the roads!

Yes lets do a Hyde Park spin; make good use of the inclement weather.

When be you in the 'Smoke', Snafu?

I can do most Sundays now, knee (1) permitting. I have a fast c*r, a CO2 pump, and the pie franchise for all of Hampshire.
