Subject: [CR] Cape UP chaps!

Like my good friend Colin! I have many many memories of the Yellow Oil skin and plastic capes. For many years I rode every day in the week to work on my Claud from Yardley my home to the Reynolds factory in Tyesley,Brum, Several time the bloody straps broke inside the cape to hold on to. what a hand full that could make in a gale force wind. BUT they did the job! Even wearing the wool sweater in the light blue and dark blue strip (my Midland C&AC Colours), that my MUM God bless, her knitted for me, it kept almost dry . I do have on my 1953 Claud, now, a oil skin yellow cape, rolled up and strapped on the Baycliff bag just like the GOOD old days. Cheers John Crump Old&tocoldforacapeBrit,snowed in Parker,Co USA
