Our bike was built as one of a pair from parts collected at auto jumbles and through friends, with
both frames and engines coming from batches of parts imported back from Egypt over a period of about
8 years. Pegasus, rebuilt by our friend Ron Heel, reached the road first in 1997 with Christina finally
catching up in 2001. Both bikes have been ridden to France.
Christina is marked as C Squadron 11 Troop 43rd Reconnaissance part of the 43rd Wessex Division.
