    a couple of other machines

    heres a couple of pics of a 1930s terrot i have slowly started reasembling and a realy badly engineered ajw collie have to try to operate a rear brake peddal with your heel while stoping the peddal from spinning round.otherwise you have to take your foot of the peddal and kick back hopeing you hit the brake and your peddal arm doesn't spin round and hit the ground if you are has a three speed fantic trials style engine which is fine but a little over the top for a delivery bike a simple automatic would have been either needed footrest and a conventional rear brake arm or automatic engine with brakes on the handlebars.

    You truly have a passion. Beautiful ! I only have room to store a few at a time.
    You must have a big storage shed for your collection. It must be fun to
    spend a day jumping from one to another going for rides.
    Thanks for sharing. graucho

    Whoa, I can't even look at all of this in one setting, bookmarked and should help me get through the winter.

    the mckenzie is have to decompress the engine to stop no clutch or gearbox a different model was brought out a couple of years later with a two speed seperate gearbox and was called a mcgregor.
