    By cycle Karts, do you mean you pedal them?
    If so, that would be a fun form of exercise.

    Its size made me think of the Lotus Seven used by Patrick McGoohan in 'The Prisoner'.

    Hi Barry,
    The answer to that would be "Nope"...
    The reasons being: -
    1: that I had only just been thought of...
    2: my parents didn't have a TV & so, even as a baby, I wouldn't have been exposed.

    Magnificent photos though = Me
