Default Leading Link 200 -Where is it?!

In case you are wondering where Leading Link for April, Issue No. 200 is, I will explain. The completed Leading Link was collected from the printers on March 23rd by Royal Mail! OK, it is 2nd class post but where oh where has it got to? Once we receive it and therefore know the total time it has taken our glorious Royal Mail to deliver it, we will be having words with them!

So, rest assured, it is not you or our editor (or anyone else on our side of the house) to blame but our glorious, privatised mail 'service'! Now, what was it the politicians tried to tell us? Privatisation leads to more competition, better and cheaper service and more choices! You decide!

Hey Rob,
I wrote to Andrew last week asking where my February copy has got to! He is checking into this for me! The December issue reached me on February 7th but I never did get the October issue except that Andrew mailed me a copy directly from the UK!
Did you know that my copies of LL are now mailed through the Czech Republic Meanwhile normal mail from the UK reaches me in about a week. So much for this privatization rubbish!

Agree entirely with Brian C. As a Greeves newbie there's lots of history to catch up on. Thanks to all who had a hand in putting it together.

LL arrived in Cambridge today Monday 9th April. A good piece of reading, particularly the report on the Grebsa owned at one time by John Blackburn.
Looking the number (HKW 644N) up on the DVLA the bike has not been taxed since 1st August 1984. The article mentions frame number beginning with 062E.
This is not a Greeves number and would appear to be a Villiers 4T engine number from a Bond Minicar. Looks like at one time the bike was fitted with a 4T engine and numbers got entered wrongly on the logbook.

This is the DVLA listing for HKW 644N

Vehicle details
Vehicle make: GREEVES
Date of first registration: April 1975
Year of manufacture: 1968
Cylinder capacity (cc): 249 cc
CO₂Emissions: Not available
Fuel type: PETROL
Export marker: No
Vehicle status: Not taxed
Vehicle colour: BLACK
Vehicle type approval: Not available
Wheelplan: 2-WHEEL
Revenue weight: Not available

I note that the Editor has made a comment that the bike is now in the ownership of Stuart Tucker with a pic on rear cover. at the Bristol Show. Its not the same bike
