I had an emmelle classic 300 yellow and black and for my gf the 200 green and black colour scheme, one day on an errand for her Mum, she was riding said steed with a bag of folded blankets down to her Nans house when the bag of folded blankets entered the front wheel, and jammed hard against the fork leg and sent her into a spectacular somersault, landing sadly yes you've guessed it on her face, the worst of which she bent the fork leg so far back on itself it was unrideable and needed a new pair of forks. This was after roughly 5 days of ownership.
Still mine seemed ok (ish) this was all happening back in '91
I remember going to the hospital driving a big four door lancia with an ingenious electric rear window blind, that made me feel very special
Edit = aiggh I have just realised I was a mere 17 at the time, blimey I feel old
