I guess 2 bikes and 3 plastic pigs. Do I win?
In the 70's I used to get my 250 ducati racer into a reliant regal van. Happy deafening days. Keith.

What a waste of all that good bike space, could easily get 15 bikes in there :)

Thank you Vincent,
Here's another one from the Reliant collection that was out of the shed when photo was taken, in company with a couple Arrows to keep the link with Ariels.

Strange innit
Something that only quite recently was an object of derision and subject to unmericful mocking is now almost elevated to classic status ..

(that's the reliant I am talking about.. not the 2-strokes ..)

Hello John,
Unfortunately they are still derided and the butt of jokes but I dont care, mine provide excellent, cheap and reliable service.
Got this one off ebay for £500...I enjoy driving mine and go all over the place collecting Leader and Arrows with trailer or taking them to shows and sleeping in the back with tent awning slung over the back door...
Here's a photo of the Red Tow truck as I call it at a stop on the A1 during a day trip to Scotland (from my home in Derbyshire) to collect this Arrow on the trailer.
