    I've been digging through my old magazines, so thought I'd scan a few ads. Here's a Velo ad from 1968:

    It sums up the era well I thought. I'd put the shot in the 80s

    Hmmn, tricky one.

    They all look quite well nourished but that's as near to a clue as I can spot.

    I seem to remember something about that. I think it was shot at the earls Court show.

    You can still buy a BSA electric bike - £998. You'll be a bit cramped on it though.

    Jehu,
    Where do you find these rigs...? Awesome.

    I have seen Triumphs with the head turned around but never have understood what the net gain was. There must be a good reason though.

    Any idea what is going on up front there, down low...? Is that a blower with the SU mounted on it are wot...?

    Best,
    Rob
