While having a sneaky liking for bikes, I gave up on them after getting a four wheel license.  Bikes tend to be cold and draughty and it hurts when you come off.


you have to be built like me Malcolm..........fat and bouncy................then it don't hurt too much..................and if anyone says you shouldn't come off.................They've NEVER  ridden a bike lol. {-) {-) :((

I got my domestic music device about 1973 from Laskeys in Preston.  Garrard must have built well - its on its third pickup and its second drive belt.  Apart from the tangential arm, nothing flash - it simply works well.

Hey Malcolm,  i used to work for Laskeys 'back in the day', in the repair workshop in Burnt Oak, Edgware.

I used to work for Granada Rentals,  Sure they owned Laskys in the late 80's/

Hi all, have alook at this, but not sure if it will come up as it is now withdrawn

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radio-Controlled-Kit-Scratch-built-Model-Boats-Model-Railway-Die-Cast-Dinky-/112974808704?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=j%252FFmNIr6jxo9TUFTV7BlcTlSk8Y%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

There was a bid on this and after looking at it I asked the seller what I might be bidding on, there's about a dozen model boats on view.  i got a response rather more than expected saying there was an auction elsewhere.

2 days later I got a part threatening warning from ebay  about my trading on ebay!

After contacting ebay they apologised to me, but the other guy is being naughty!
regards Roy

I think from reading the original add, a few days ago  the 3 quid start price was for registration to become a bidder at the auction and also  for a catalogue..........although I have never seen one advertised on eBay before it is quite common for auction houses to charge for registration and catalogue, in that way, should you bid and win, they sneakily keep your card details and charge you for the goods won whether you pick them up or not.


also eBay are not joking..........I offered to pay a cash price for something if I picked up personally.........only in st annes.........and got banned for 2 weeks for trying to deal off site..................so not only mayhem I get banned from lol.

Hi all, subsequently I received a satisfaction survey from ebay.  At the end I was asked did I get my problem resolved, there was an option of I am not sure.  When asked I said what happens next time when I ask a question and you, ebay, do not like the answer.  Do I get another threat/ warning email?

Realistically..As have seen far better, and better setup  for less, but good luck to the seller. I have no issues with what people want to charge..

i get tired of people phoning me saying they want to sell their deceased partners boats, i arrive, ask them what they want me to do with them. sell them is the most obvious answer. then they they start on about that they have been on ebay checking the prices out and telling me how much they want for each boat they have. one recently had a micro magic. early version where the white hull had gone yellow, grotty dirty sails no radio gear, mast and boom both bent. was told she saw one on fleabay for 400 so they thought 300 was a fair price. when i pointed out and showed them i could pick up a brand new one for 150 they were not happy.  then I was asked to do it up and put a radio in it at my expense then sell it! ludicrous.

he'll probably never get that amount, but who are we to criticise him for asking top dollar.....I do the same with my lifeboats............someone sometimes bites.............and if not I have them to look at and sail when I can get off my fat backside and take to the lake.........which isn't that often these days.
