Cedric Lynch : the man with the bike

Think this was the clip that Plod mentioned, on the Wallace & Gromit programme.

And it links to the C5 quite nicely as the body is made from the same material as the boot inners, and you can see a C5 buried in his garden  ;D

Still not sure i'd fancy doing 64mph in it though  ;D

He most certainly is, and electricDave knows him  8)

Sadly Cedric was not treated with the respect he deserves ;

 In July 2002 the Danish parent company of LEMCO dismissed Cedric Lynch. An industrial tribunal ruled several months later that the dismissal was unfair and also ordered LEMCO to pay Cedric a large amount of money it owed him. On the same day LEMCO was put into liquidation heavily insolvent. Many of its assets had been transferred over the previous few months to L.M.C., a previously dormant company owned by the same parent company, which has since continued making motors in the UK.
 
Subsequently Cedric got together with his friend Arvind Rabadia, who together with his Brother Hasmuk Rabadia had been thinking of starting a business in India, and set up Agni Motors to make further-improved versions of Cedric's motors.



It was great to see him enjoying some well earnt success at the Isle of Man TT and gaining the admiration of all those around him.

It was great watching him go down the 1/4 mile at santa pod on Saturday, I had forgotten where I had seen him before, very clever man.
