The Periwinkle run
« on: August 20, 2012, 09:58:06 AM »
Here is a link to some pics from the moped run I attended last Sunday. Pleased to say that the Guzzino on its first official outing went very well. My pal Steve Leonards Phillips Gadabout however broke down twice, the second time terminally and he did most of the run on the back of the rescue truck. Some what ironic really as he said he would stick with me on the run in case I broke down as it was the Guzzino's first thirty mile run.  In the pictures there is a small blue bike called a Lynx, this was made by Elswick which I thought may be of interest to Chris Thomas

Dear Bob

The Elswick Lynx looks very stylish I must say.

Nice pix there Bob, rather partial to Beezer Batams myself.

Yup, very evocative of the time, and I like the Bantam logo too.
