I'd had reports from various colleagues:
"Dean's been on the 'phone. He's really worried that you'll be disappointed"
"Dean's been on the 'phone. He wonders what the f**k you want that for!"
Sure enough, Dean turned up looking rather worried and kept me waiting most of the day before we went to unload the van. This is what we unloaded:
The front tyre fell off when the 'ped was lifted into the van yesterday morning!
I had been warned that the seat was missing. The luggage rack is a bonus - my other Ariel 3 doesn't have one.
Ooh! Time to open it up and have a look at the engine...........
Strange, I thought those leaves would just fall off.........
The engine? It's in there somewhere.....
Are you ready to see the engine, Larry? It's here. Underneath that birds nest!
What a vision of loveliness! It did make me laugh......I think it could be quite a challenge but nothing a hoover and a bit of polish won't sort. I've got a spare seat somewhere. It might need new tyres too!
