Cant believe it.
I have been looking for a particular bicycle for years, longer than my yearning for the Hetchins, which frankly was purchased BECAUSE I knew my search for this bicycle was futile.
Then today, I got a notification from Ebay that a certain bike had been listed. For years they have sent me such notifications, only for me to open the search to find – a bicycle bell, or even a frame, but the frame would be big or huge or broken, or need so much renovation that living on an expensive to get stuff to and from, the price would simply be too big, the hassle impossible.
But this notification was different.
This time it looks like this ‘IS THE ONE’,
‘The One’ is a stunning fire red, Flying Scot bicycle, made by Ratterys in Glasgow Scotland. A true home bred bicycle from a famous frame builder. AND best of all, it was build in 1963. The very year I was born!

Here she is looking like she is taking a wee holiday somewhere.
