Cutting down on my collection

Hi Guys N Gals

Due to the fact we've bought a pair of narrowboats Freyja and Christina I intend to cut down on my collection of bicycles (& motorcycles)
If anyone would like my one off aircraft quality engineered folder, or my beautiful German 'Falter' (butterfly) 26" wheeled folder or even my gorgeous Becak, Indonesian rickshaw, my OkeyJa Recumbent and probably sell my early rivet-framed Moulton F-frame.

Hi John

Long time no see, very busy at the moment, kids going to Uni etc. moving to a smaller house and trying to find the time to move the boats 150 miles and through 130 locks.
Hate selling 'my babies' but even with two boats there's not enough room for everything.

Hello Chop!,

yes!

We're camping in France with 2 Brompton M6L's now, currently in Brax, near Toulouse, so have to get in touch when we're back, & hopefully meet up if you do go to Northamptonshire. I may be in the Potteries in a week or so, so if boats are still near Crewe, I can take some pic's. It'd certainly be interesting to see your collection.

I met Mark S. last year, grand chap, & he has still has some Strida bits for sale.

Right, I'll carry on reading your boat blog

Bon vacances alors!
I keep in touch with Mark, he gave me the bits I needed to make my Traida (Strida trailer)


I will be at the boats Aqueduct marina, Church Minshull on 2nd or 3rd of October, then leaving on 5th to steer them down to Ringstead on the River Nen(e) 150 miles through 120 locks!

Be great to see you and give you a tour and a cuppa.

Bon continuation ;o)
