It will be the Pashley bird down the road that will be crying soon as your lovely wife rides up and down the road in front of her house ;)
Have a lovely Christmas with the family.

What a brilliant thread. Congratulations to you both on the finished build. No wonder your wife had a little cry. Have a wonderful family Christmas and try to stay out of the bike shed for at least today, there is always tomorrow!! :xmas-wink: :xmas-wink:

:xmas-big-grin: So whilst me & Jim washed up the girls rode their bikes up and down past the ‘Pashley Palace’ at least three times, but the challenge for a drag race wasn’t taken up! :xmas-wink:

As for the front baskets (on both the girls CB’s) these are only for village vitals retrieval, & will be removed for touring and hi-days such as hopefully Eroica Britannia. :xmas-big-grin:
