I did a favour for someone at work today and got an email back saying "brill". I've not heard or used brill since I was about eight, it took be straight back to the playground, jumpers for goal posts...

It got me thinking of the other long lost words I used as a kid. I would like to remind the retrobike community of:

Berk
Skill
Skillish

Any others?
