Re: 25th Anniversary 2014

Never a great fan of the meeting up before, as nice as it is to convoy in it always becomes a hassle with someone who is always late getting up or hung over or must go for mcdonalds breakfast etc etc..

Re: ERA 1059

I've sold 3 ! For valuation I think you would be hard pressed to find a very very nice example for less than £10,000 now. Sure you may get one £6,000 but you will be spending on it to bring it up to that level. £15,000 plus for excellent very low Miles seems reasonable.
