I have been a reader of your magazine for quite some time now and always find myself eagerly awaiting the next issue and I must say, I am never disappointed.
Fine and Dandy

Having been inspired by your regular ’Reader’s restoration’ in the centre pages I have taken the bull by the horns and embarked on my first classic British motorcycle project. Having scoured eBay for weeks looking for something that little bit different, I stumbled upon a BSA Dandy scooter. Okay, it’s not to everyone’s taste but it’s simple, quite rare and, I think, funky. It is a total basket case and needs a lot of tlc lavishing on it... but my philosophy is that everything is restorable with enough care and attention and I’m looking forward to getting stuck.

Being new to British classics, I was wondering if there is anywhere I can find the history of my moped? The registration KRN 942 suggests a Preston origin but I would love to know more about it. I will keep you posted on the progress of the build. Brilliant magazine, keep up the good work.
