Hello Dai.I like the sound of your toy collection.If you need transfers try the VMCC.shop they do transfers for all sorts if motor cycles and they might have a suitable one for your trike.I got some very good transfers for my Nippy from them.I never reached the dizzy heights of a Jack Taylor tandem but I do have a tatty prewar Claud Butler tandem that I must finish painting one day.Cheers Paul

Hi Mr Rabbit,
Thank you for the welcome, we attend some Scotish shows each year, but other wise we just play with our toys, but they all have to be able to do a turn at the shopping, work, recycleing runs etc, i have been using the tricycle as transport in our village, dispite hills, and a lack of gears, the Austin 7 when its any distance, or looking wet,or large shop, Cyclemaster when its just me , bikes for local runs,and work, when the sun shines, or might shine,
well to needs, one a headstock badge for the tricycle, pair of Norman bicycle pedels, and any imfo or pictures etc on Norman tricycles. any help gratefully recived Dai.



PS latest joke on my ward "what do you call half a rabbit ? answer Rab"

Better than being called Bit anyway.In the sixties I saw somebody cutting up a yard full of Austin Sevens and when I said" you can't do that it's cruel" he suggested that perhaps I would like to buy them.So I bought 5 of them and had to clear the site that day,so I dragged them home and parked them in my field.Some I sold,some I dismantled for bits and one of them I restored.After a while someone pestered and pestered to buy it so eventually I sold it to him(I think for about £50)I am pleased to say that he still has it and still enjoying it.Cheers Paul
