I'm not listening :shock: . I've got a pre-WW1 Sunbeam already :oops: . But that hasn't stopped me before :roll: What would I do with another one anyway? I haven't restored the first one yet (mmm. that's a good point - I could always ride one until the other's finished :? )
No. I must be strong - and resist (for a while at least :wink: )

Me and my Primus #210 are very happy together, but we don't feel the need to associate with those kind of people :lol:
