Luckily, those things from back then still remain. Apart from the weather.

You and me both :) Ever had a little noise/siren box thingy that attached to the handle bars? Made a few different sounds. Brilliant.

Brilliant. And I think I'd keep it in the living room as well.

Hi Andy,
That looks really smart, nice one. 8-)
At this rate, the money you got for the Capri will soon be gone if you keep buying Choppers!

Are you buying them for potential future appreciation of value?

Andrew.

Give it a go in every room. But let it live in the living room, you could make a great feature and talking point out of that.

Hi All,
I am happy with the 2 I now have, if they appreciate great and if they don't that's fine too as they are the rarer Bikes in the range :D

The spares for these can be overpriced as in the Classic Car World, but not using them so shouldn't be an issue.....

It's safer in the Spare Room and as its a Bungalow I haven't far to go to look at it :lol:

I've looked at the evidence & what you have here is a bad case of Nostalgia!
