Update on this. The red one seems to be an east German 2 stroke 50cc Simpson Star.

Thanks, never heard of Simpson before.


It looks very like this from the Wiki page - Publicity photo of Simson SR 4-3 Sperber:

Just looking at the pic above, do you guys worry about taking your classic out in the rain? I personally check the weather before going out. Am I being too fussy?

If I was planning to just go out for the day in it, I probably wouldn't if it was lashing all day. But if I was out in it and it started raining, it wouldn't bother me really. And if I was going away for a few days in it, I'd just roll with it.

That said, I keep it in the garage when not in use, and only put it in the garage once dried. Even when I wash it I'd bring it for a quick spin to avoid water gathering and sitting in hidden places.

My car spends roughly 363 days a year in a very dry shed. I'm not fussy at all what weather it's exposed to for the 2 days it gets out!

I generally check the weather and make a call. If I get caught in it there is little I can do.

I'm more worried about salt and gritters. If it rains when I'm out then so be it but if its lashing down then I wont take them out.

saw this today - nice bus.

When I played with dinkys as a kid - it was always an estate that I brought camping to the woods.
Bringing this old bus up to ticknock to go mountain biking seems close enough !
He's living my dream

Its been here a while judging by the plate - but soon to enjoy its age.

If he lived in Wexford he'd already be on €56.
