Got my issue of the Midland C&AC club mag, Roll Call (West Midlands UK) one of my old mates. maybe even older than me! wrote the following, "I was cleaning out the garden shed a few weeks ago and came across the Joe Cooke(Jug Handle) Petrel road bike.I took off it's cover. pumped-up the tyres and gave the moving parts a stray of WD40-And looking at it longingly thought- My bicycle,my bicycle. thou standest by sadle. Thy clittering surface now flecked and awry: We canst not roam the highways now, with all our winged speed, I canst not ride thee now, nor on they seat proceed. So, slow and unmounted will I roam, and thick boots I will don, But not byy roads where gladsomely. we two were erstwhile on: And sitting down in some Pub chair, I'll smoke and glady think."I cannot ride my bicycle now, and so I'll have a Drink!" BET Hilary. Peter Alexander etc would love to pay a fiver for THIS bike to SELL ON EBAY Cheers John Crump OldmyDadhadashedlikethisBrit, Parker. Co USA
