Having read the letter from John Cotterell of Portland in the May 2018 issue, there is a possibility that I now own the Fastback LR that he is referring to (see photograph on the right). I purchased the bike back in 1992 and, having tracked its provenance, know that it was originally purchased from Huxhams in Poole in 1971. Maybe John can remember the registration? The front brake is still poor!
