    To preserve the spokes.... I still make the revving sounds with my mouth and lips. I also do this when driving my AMG ;^)

    I have tried without success to find the original (or copy) plastic hub bracelets that were used to clean the hubs and often came with reflectors in them? Anybody have set? Please shout.

    The tassles are actually 1970's originals and not bought for my wife.

    You may chuckle. In my youth I was always the Stuka Dive Bomber when playing Aeroplanes, and not because I had bent up arms. It was hell as all my friends were Spitfires and Hurricanes so got to make machine gun noises as they shot me down.

    I never had a Chopper although I did want one. A cool looking bike that had a gear stick like a car! The one you have looks to be a fantastic example. :cool:

    My mate had one with the racing bike type handlebars which looked pretty unsafe and this was borne out when he couldn't control the bike when we were flying down a steep hill.
    He ended up in a hawthorn bush that had very long needles and he was a write off!
