just seen it! I only remember the colour(blue) Must have been Raleigh, with dads employee discount. First trip out, straight down Bagnall road, dad chasing after me and mum yelling that "he'll kill himself" 

not much changed, but the bikes did. Mind , I'd probably be safer let out on a trike these days.

I'm still riding a trike but have managed to roll it over a couple of times, great fun though, I seem to remember the trike I had as a kid had some sort of handle for a parent to hold onto,might have been a telescopic affair that ran down the side of the frame when not in use

I managed to roll over a Mini once at the top of Woodborough hill. Fortunately it landed the right way up so I was able to drive it home. It was in the middle of winter and it felt very cold but that was because all the windows had dropped out. Still got the scar to prove it! The car had a new body and it was fine after that.

I think that could happen to old Minis without rolling them.

Yes Cliff. The windows popped out fairly easily. They weren't an integral part of the structure. I saw the same car, many years later, parked up in Newquay. It had a number I wish I'd kept, 71 STO. It was originally almond green but the new body was painted red with a black roof - just like a Monte Carlo Rally car! It's not currently on a vehicle so I guess it was never retained.

I owned a motorbike 396 STO.

Interestingly the Mini came new from a dealer in Bulwell whose name escapes me.
