British Bikes / British motorcycle charitable trust

This was a a new one on me, and normally I stay well clear of anything "charity, but seems a good deal for 20 a year, gives free access to a lot of bike museums.
Near me I have Sammy Miller, Haynes, Beaulieu museum, Brooklands and the Tank Museum all qualify under this scheme if I get round to most of them this summer I'll be quids in.
Anyone else in it?

Look at this ebay ad,
A BSA round tank, a "board racer"  its a race bike because its got no mudguards ::) ::) ::) ::) ::), oh and a hard tail.

The depth of sheer pig ignorance in some ebay ads is bottomless.

British Bikes / Old bike magazines are they a burden?
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:02:01 PM »
Having a sort out,  dragged out all the old 'Motorcycle' mags I ever bought from back in the 1960s till it went tabloid. Dog eared, mice nibbled, damp, covers loose..........I just can't bring myself to dump them and in their present state they are worthless, but just my longest connection with bikes,  I bought some  before my first bike.

You can't give away old Classic Motorcycle glossies from even before the evil empire days.

Anyone else got this problem? I've a feeling they be used to line my coffin.

Try this site for the 'beam, it worked well for me recently. Buyer contact system cauts out all the tossers.

Better than ebay, as no fees at all. better even than a specialist Military site for my bike.
world wide market and stays on till sold.
