Hi from Cambridgeshire...
« on: 09, July, 2010 - 16:37:27 »
Hi! I'm Matt, from Cambridgeshire (near Ely). I had two C5's but one has been stolen recently (see my other posts for details).  I now have one in original condition (apart from mod to run from car battery).  I use mine as often as possible, especially for going to and from work on. Absolutely love it!  Always turns heads and raises a smile - even had the local kids from the school bus photographing me on their mobile phones.

I'm up for meetings etc but am a bit tehcnically challenged when it comes to mechanics etc so any help/advice is always appreciated!

If you're in my area, get in touch!

Hiya Matt  ;D
Wondered when you'd pop over  :D

Definely recommend coming along to some of the meets. The recent one ( Royal Run ) was great, even if my chain did break half way round  :D

Hey Matt, how's it going?  I tried to use my C5 to get me to work last year, but with unforseen results.  Anyway, you seem to be using it for its intended purpose, apart from the rallys and runs of course, so good for you.

Hi Matt and welcome to the forum, don't worry about technical issue's, the C5 is very useable, I use mine often to get to work and back etc, and have never had any major problems, only ever had the odd puncture and the chain coming off. When it comes to the runs we all help each other if a problem crops up so come along, the numbers are growing and its great fun.
