That is what I mean by teds  -  Drapes & crepes with a cwif.

a little more decorative than the ones in Morpeth Northumberland but yep think we're talking the same guys, wonder if they kept their gear (what goes around comes around)

1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

Great photos Wozza. Infinitely cooler than me and my mates with our crap mopeds (fun though they were)
'59 A7 - No idea what I'm doing with it.
