Re: What happened to the small Roberts that was for sale?

It went for £315 so I would think he is very happy.

Another PM sent. If Sweep has dibs on the large I'd like the medium please.

Re: What happened to the small Roberts that was for sale?

Now on Ebay, start price £150. I hope he gets a better price than that. Well he has already got 1 bid so I would think he would. The pictures are a bit better than the ones he posted on here and he is prepared to post it so that should help a lot. If you want a small touring bike it's a good buy. I...

What happened to the small Roberts that was for sale?

There was quite a lengthy thread on this and it seems to have all disappeared! I can understand the seller deleting the listing but surely that doesn't remove the entire thread.

Anyone got a copy of Frank Patterson British Counties series Volume 9 Warwickshire/Leicestershire and Volume 10 Cheshire/Derbyshire/Staffordshire that they would like to part with? I have the other 8 volumes in the series. Thanks.

Re: Anyone else getting close to 1 million miles?

As for the doubting Thomas's upthread why on earth would anybody lie about their mileage in a private diary? :roll: So that when you're older, someone will lavish a load of attention on you as the subject of a relatively pointless news story? So when you start recording your mileage in 1952 you exa...

Re: Anyone else getting close to 1 million miles?

Well I think it's brilliant! I've only been recording my mileage since I bought my Roberts in 2006. I'll certainly never make a million miles but if I continue at the same rate (unlikely) I might be eligible for the 300,000 club by the time I'm 80! As for the doubting Thomas's upthread why on earth ...

Re: 2019 - Twenty a day?

October's mileage was a little bit down but 8811 miles at the start of November so 10,000 miles for the year should be doable assuming no accident, illness or freak weather!

Re: Helmets in Spain

A roadie friend of mine was given an on the spot fine for not wearing a helmet in Spain a year or two ago. IIRC it was a €50 fine. Then what happened? If he'd carried on with his ride, would he still be at risk for being fined again, and again, and again .................... ? Hmmm...... Good quest...
