Norbert Mylius from Austria would also like to know more about the "Bond Minibyke"  (perhaps someone took a photo of whatever is taped to the windscreen?)
For anyone interested THIS LINK: http://members.lycos.co.uk/bond_club/Minibyke.htm has a bit more info on the Bond MiniByke

Norbert would also like to know a bit more about this car:

That caught my attention too, looks a bit like Autobianchi, but the rear window is novel.
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

It looks like to me a Second Series Berlina or the Panoramica  from Autobianchi.  A sort of wagon or square-back version of the Bianchina.  Year 1965 to 69.  I have a poster on my wall of the Twenty-four models of the Bianchina's and this is similar but difficult to say exactly without seeing better the rear form. :)
AC, Acoma, Argsons, Arola, Batricars, Bianchina, Carter, Citroens, Cushmans, Dafs, ElectricPal, ElectricShopper, Elswick, Eshelman, Everest, Goggo, Harding, Invacar, Levesons, Lloyd, Marketeer, Model 70's (AC, Invacar), Nelcos, Poirier, Reliants, Renaults, Sinclairs,Trabant, Trilox, Tippen etal

Hi Jim,
The sign on the windshield of the Bond Minibyke read 'For Sale or Swap' I spoke with the owner
Alan Evans the creator of the 'Bamby' who said he would prefer to swap for a microcar rather than sell for cash. Les

 For as long as I've known him, he's only ever been half restored!  ;)   :-*

 And don't forget folks, lots more National '09 photos to be seen on the National Microcarcar Rally website at;

 http://www.national-microcar-rally.co.uk/2009_photo_gallery.htm 

 They want to add more photos, so get on & send 'em in. Anyone got a shot of Alan Evans himself standing next to the Bamby?
