Look what I found in World of Country Life, Exmouth

Went to the World of Country Life, Exmouth and there was the good old C5 in their collection. It has seen better days but good to see it with the classic bikes.

Fantastic place for a visit and kids loved it. E.Coli scare here was greatly exaggerated by news and petting zoo was closed straight away by owners as a precaution. The animal part is only a small part of the whole site and some really good exhibits and lots of fun stuff for the kids.

Nice to see them on display, shame its so far away from me though - I could have gone along and sorted it out for them.

I agree, always good to see them, even better when you look at one and think, mine C5 is cleaner than that  :)

Retro Andy.

The c5 on display at Brooklands was looking a bit tired a few years back, which is why I offered to clean it up for them. "c5alive" donated all the replacement stickers,tubes etc.

The Brooklands c5 is now fully functional and looking good , I pop back every now and then to smarten it up - and put the mirrors back on etc.

For a static display vehicle it seems to get quite a few knocks  :o

Sadly there are just too many display c5's for us to take care of them all  :-[
