Default Re: Hi from New Zealand

Thanks for your welcomes; and Jemma you're right - I was born in Salisbury all those years ago. The Sampson Motor Co: once made cars and after the war they produced what I think was called a Cyclaid. Belt drive seemed to me to be better than friction, and the motor was very reliable. I hope to see more motored bikes in NZ; we are all suffering from oil prices and the North Island climate is warmer than a good many places. Thames, where I live is on the edge of the Plains (Sianelle's address) so we may, metaphorically, bump into each other one day...........Sarum
