After weeks of searching on ebay, gumtree, preloved etc. it finally happened one Sunday morning. Ebay came good and a 32cc Cyclemaster was won AND it was local, only 7 miles away.
Bought blind, it was very much an unknown quantity – owned from new by the sellers grandfather; not known whether it was functional or even compete; not known when it last ran and no log book. It originated in the West Country from a family of” hoarders” – their description not mine! They turned out to be very genuine, really helpful people who were a pleasure to meet.
They didn’t know the registration number but agreed to have a look for the log book, or an old photo, next time they were down in Bristol. Fingers crossed, they’ll find it…..
