    That really does look shite.

    I’ve looked at it for several minutes and can’t find one redeeming feature.

    That’s the first bicycle whose looks I haven’t been indifferent to. That actually looks good. Wouldn’t fancy pedaling it though, but I guess they’ve got that covered.

    Perhaps they should spend a bit more time designing a decent F1 car than making the ugliest bikes they can think of.

    Where are the cranks?

    Caterham have moved from what they do best – the 7. Nothing else has really worked and personaly I don’t think it will.

    First thing to pop into my head is the colour scheme and how good it looked on Zed 1’s, always wanted a big old Zed, got as far as looking at a Zed 13 🙂 couldn’t afford either now being modern classics.

    So Caterham is making me think of old Kawasakis

    Caterham lost the plot when they left Caterham. As for going bust, aren’t they now some brand mark plaything for a billionaire?

    That didn’t stop TVR from going to the grave

    TVR was a birthday present for a child. Caterham seems to be owned by a nice guy who is at least keen.

    Are you mad!

    Next season’s engine rule changes are made for them. They’ve been sticking old escort engines in their cars for years…

    Fat bike plus electricity – Two wrongs don’t make a right.
    Fortunately, I don’t think we’ll see them at trial centres, they’ll be too damn heavy to lift onto the bike rack.

    Muddyground, are you from Caterham?

    I grew up there and my mum and dad recently moved from there.

    Their move was partly fuelled by the showroom closing and turning into retirement flats!

    Not too far away – used to go into the town with my boy to sit in the cars, and then pop over the road to the vintage toy shop and buy stuff from when I was a kid. Now both are gone Caterham town holds no appeal for me personally. Even my wife, who has no interest in the cars, said that the town isn’t the same without them in it. We’ve not been back for ages and can’t see any reason to.

    Worse, during the Veteran run to Brighton there’d always be a decent showing of 7’s on the A23 north of Redhill – this year was zip.

    I do hope they find a proper home and that Tony does good by them, but there is definitely something missing around these parts now and I can see why your parents would leave.

    Caterham died when they knocked the Valley Hotel down but that’s going back a bit!

    250w motor exceeds max output permitted for a solo bicycle in the UK. Okay on the continent tho’.
