Cut and pasted form Velovision - the more of us know about it the better, especially with the bikes being fairly distinctive...

Cycling in the sun
He lives 3 doors down from one of my friends, although I've only seen him cycling a couple of times around Bristol, he is distinctive when you see him.
I broke his Windcheetah a few years ago during a test ride. I had serviced it and was chucking it into a corner when the flange fell off the nasty Sturmey hub and folded the wheel. He didnt mind a bit, Seat of the Pants sent out a new wheel gratis and everyone lived happily ever after. The origional 'Speedys' had french Atom moped hubs which were indestructible.
I had already posted this on SCF, and in another couple of threads.

Very distinctive bikes, will be hard to pass on.
