Bub, if you are happy with that then that is great and I am happy for you but I cannot possibly press 'like' on this one ☺

Well this maybe why I generally alarm the public! And at least now I'm noticeable if anyone sees me!

Good job you have kids already. No seat belts and that gear knob looks in a dangerous position if you need to stop quickly.

I know bugger all about bikes and trikes, but really this is all that matters:

I've not felt as happy as I do in a long time.


As for the numberplate, if it's had that number all its life then it's part of its identity and I wouldn't change it.

I would change the actual plate though - it's too new for silver on black!

It's got seatbelts on the rear and I'm braced by the pedals in an emergency stop!

Hate silver on black myself. Probably going to end up with a pressed steel.

I would leave the plate unless some Brexiteer comes and offers you £££ for it.

If you transfer the plate off to another vehicle (£80) you get issued another age related plate for it free anyway.

The only opinion of any consequence in the whole thread.

But fuck me, that makes an Invacar restoration almost look like a worthwhile endeavour.

Just an observation Bub. 

See the bars on brandersnatch's that go out from the chassis to the back wheel.

You could put something similar on yours, coming out from the tube hole in your chassis, to the outside edge of the tyre.

I didn't have them on mine, but a young lady was riding it after I sold it and hit a bollard with the back wheel.

Made me wonder if it would make any difference.

My friend did say there's a way of swapping reg plate for free but I don't know how and I didn't ask further. I know the connations of it but it's just a reg plate to me!

If you tell DVLA that you find the plate offensive or something along tose lines, they will change it free of charge! Strange, but true. What a heap, I love it! :)

It had a Fiesta front drum and a Sierra IRS setup with a servo. Brakes worked very well. I had it for about six years, never a problem. It’s still taxed and MOT’d, I’ve seen it about recently
