About 1985, passed this every day on the way to work. After a few months saw the owner and offered him £50.
Took it home and got it running without too many problems.
About a week later it was stolen and never seen again.
ET3 was it? Nice, rough and ready, I have a tatty ET3, brilliant to ride.
It was Shaun. It was actually tatty but quite straight. Nippy as you like too.
Rode it to the MOT place and it passed. A gear cable snapped on the way home, so I walked back to get my brother to help me push it home (up hill). When we got back to where I left it (less than a mile away) it was gone.
I also had a GT200 once. But not for long. A terrible story of youth and foolishness that I will one day reveal. :}
can only hope who ever nicked it didnt put air in back tyre but did put themselves in A&E , for a long stay , have lost 1 scoot n 1 bike in 30+ years of owning both , i still think on em sometimes an yes it still hurts , H
if its got wheels n makes a noise i wanna play with it,skateboards included coz "skate punks rule".
Ah bad luck that, I pushed my old 50 special 3 miles home with a flat back tyre as I was worried about it getting either nicked or kicked in by the locals. It was at that time decorated with all the crash bars lights and mirrors n stuff I was into then. Nearly had heart attack by the time i got home!
