Sinclair C5 RELAUNCH????
« on: 01, April, 2013 - 11:31:38 »
Just been reading an interesting article regarding a relaunch of the C5  ???

Apparently a Chinese company called Gocha Technologies have bought the rights to the name, have now remade the moulds taking casts from an original body, and hope to start production in only a few weeks time. Interesting, but I don't think that they're going to be available here as it says that they're hoping to "reduce bicycles on the streets of Beijing".

Be interesting to try and import one though  :D

Believe it or not I've received more than a couple of emails from some Chinese companies suggesting they are considering something similar to a c5....many a true word said in jest  ;D
