Found: Flevo hood
« on: November 29, 2018, 11:53:47 pm »
I've just rescued a Flevo hood (detachable roof for a velomobile) from a cyclepath in the village.

I suspect it belongs on the orange Starda sometime seen around here. Anybody know the owner?

Technically, I didn't find it on a ride.

 I went on a ride to find it, after somone on the village facebook page posted a photo (they didn't know what it was).  :smug:

Another project for 'Tales from the Wobbly Workshop'?

Or is it more of a D-Tek job...?
VELOMANCER

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

I think the owner is Norfolk based, so it's more likely to be 'Simon from up near Burnham Thorpe'. I hate working with composites.

His estimates are around £2k worth of damage.  :o

I think some of the electronics are missing, along with the owners phone. (He has been able to text me, so I guess he has access to another phone).

Annoyingly, the Velomobile was his main means of transport.  >:(
