    • Yeah the interaction seems to have significantly dropped off the past few years Harry. We do not see Andy around at all now tbh. I thiink he goes to some scooter rallies but none of us attend such events so we may not bump into him for a while yet. I do not have Ralphs number otherwise I would text him to get him to text you back. I will certainly mention it to him when I next see him.

      His new (ish) scooter is amazing. It was actually in scootering magazine a while back. He got hold of an old Li that was actually in the Barnes Mods book. He stripped it down to the bare metal and has done it the same as it was back in the early 60s when the photo was taken at Margate, an amazing job by the big chap.1783690609?profile=RESIZE_930x

    • Gotta love Ralph's attention to detail.  Where he got that sticker from God only knows. Yeah thanks Chris,  nice to stay in touch every now and again :-)

    • Yeah i agree 100% Harry the attention to detail is fantastic. Just where he sourced all those little bits to make it identical to how it was in early 1964 is a mystery but well done to him for such an effort.

    • Morning Gary

      I was looking back over some posts this morning and found this from you.  You are of course completely correct. We must embrace the modern to move forward or in fact to even stand still. A little of both can be enjoyed I feel. I have a smart phone and cd player.  But I ride a px and wear tweed suits. It is attitude rather than things that Mark a person as who they are. I love to see New and young people on here rather than Facetube.  I hope to hear from you soon and that you are out on the water.

    • Totally agree Gary, i guess you can't please everyone though, but there's no question some mods seem to think if it aint '60's' it aint no good, clothes that look 60's, scooters from the 60's music from the 60's etc etc...and then the bands they do like are 60's derivatives but this is somehow them embracing modern times lol. 

      I see myself more and more of a modernist than a mod, too many people constantly harking back to times past seemingly forgetting why mod existed in the first place.

    • I may go back to sleep but you definitely need to waken up ....mate :0)

    • I believe you have totally missed my point Chris. Never mind, go back to sleep mate and enjoy your dream world ;0)

    • Yes it is Kai, to be honest and JP's collection is stunning, but one has to be an enthusiast as well as a Mod to finance such extravagances.

    • Like Chris says; of course we do have one foot in the '60s, though I like to see it as a kind of timeless style. Not adverse to the occasional two button and even like the design of this scooter here. My favourite Album of 2018 is Leon Bridges' Good Thing, which radically left the 60s image and sound of its' forerunner behind. My favourite band remains St Etienne (well, apart from the Beatles maybe... :-)) and new acts like MF Robots are always welcome! ;-)1834124333?profile=RESIZE_930x
