I have some tiny negatives that were taken with a miniature camera that used 8mm film and probably a lens made from old Coke bottle scraps polished on a pavement. Will try and get my Canonscan to do some prints which I will send as soon as .

Have you got anything on a clip on motor for bicycles named Flink , which was a very powerful and fast 49cc running on the back wheel

There wont be a pic coming because the negative has gone amiss .

In South Africa we had lots of mopeds but here in Australia where I now live there seems to have been no interest in them at all till the 1990's.

Many thanks

The email quoted above is from a scammer.

Can you send me the scam link mentioned in the last email ... I deleted the message by mistake and although I got the web site right couldn't find the article you were referring to.

More on scammers...

Order of play when I was at school
Garelli first on the scene in sports mode which was quickly demolished by the Itom.
Maserati made a beautiful bike with flared megaphone exhaust and was a real screamer but not as fast as the first two.
Conventional in style ( step thru') was the Zundapp Combinette ..an good favourite ... it started easily and ticked over like a clock
Ugly as sin but really expensive and powerful enough to carry two easily  ... Kreidler Florian
Not first in the looks department was a range of excellent Sachs engined mopeds with a sprinkling of NSU and Mobylette's
At the bottom of the pile were the clip-on friction drive Garelli Mosquito ( I would love to have one today) and
Velo Solex .
Best of all was the Puch aircooled 49cc sounded great and went like the clappers and never gave any trouble.
I could remember more!
