19 years later its time to buy another Brompton!

In 1995 my wife and I bought two shiny new Bromptons from SJS Cycles. My wifes a red L3 and mine a black T5. Well the L3, fitted with a ladies sprung Brooks has been used sparingly and still looks next to new - my wife would never sell it. My T5 on the other hand led a hard life but soldiered on for 5 years until an argument with a speeding white van killed it. Nearly killed me in fact! RIP trusty T5! Not long after I didnt need to take a bike on the train for my daily commute so returned to big wheel bikes. Faced with the prospect of having to commute by a combination of train and bike this month I decided to return to the 'fold'

As a result I bought a 2 year old M3 and instantly fell in love with the Brompton experience again. Fitted with a Carradice pannier (from eBay - I love the look), a cape roll and Brooks Swift it feels and looks just right. Here it is next to my wifes 1995 model:

This morning I popped out to do some shopping - it was nice not to have to worry about carrying a heavy lock and faffing about securing things when I got there. I simply slung the pannier over my shoulder, folded the bike up and took it into Waitrose with me. No one gave it a second glance.
:D

My Dahon Vitesse D3, now technically a 'D5' since I changed the SRAM iMotion 3 for a more practical Sturmey SRF5. Great fun to ride, but the geometry starts to cripple me once I hit about 50 miles. Currently living in a flat with no storage, so this is rather embarassingly my 'main bike' at present. Looking forward to getting my proper bikes back when I move!

That's a nice machine you've got there, Terry - where did the frame come from?

The frame is an old Carlton. I've had it knocking around for so long I can't remember where it came from!
