I got a Special Delivery letter back via "lost Mail sorting" in Belfast after 4 months. I'd claimed from Royal Mail as it had been a very important work document. I got the fee back and a book of 12 1st class stamps as compo after a few weeks "normal" delay.

I'm late for this one, but I prefer soda blasting as there's no chance of blasting grit getting anywhere & the rust & crud can be washed away with the remaining soda. I also prefer to treat with Kurust before painting. I have found BBQ paint in aerosols to be very good.

Sadly, another place of memories gone.

Please pass on my condolences to all family and friends. I will spare a thought for Barry on the day.

I'd suggest collecting ebay listings, especially completed, i.e. sold bikes, with dates & condition, then collect adverts from wherever you can. This will help to guide whoever does it for you, a classic aware bike shop is a good idea.
Peter James's insurers accept valuations up to 5k with photos of both sides of the bike.

Nice message from Rowena at RealClassic. Enjoy!

It's been a while since we shared this - a free sample digital issue, so you can see what the magazine is like in this format.
It's an older issue, but will let you see how RC looks on your device. Can't say I'd recommend reading it on a phone (!) but it looks pretty good on a tablet, I think.
Might be the ideal solution for folks fed up with stacks of magazines scattered around the place, or who doesn't want to wait for the postman to deliver!
Here's the link - you're welcome to share it:

We counted them out...


they all returned!
