Hi Bill

I can't disagree with anything you have written, I certainly share your love of singles and British singles in particular, but for people not of our spannering persuasion I do sort of get it. I suppose RE have proved there is a great market out there for 'retro' singles without the pain of ownership that some of our preferred bikes can represent.

Either way you always speak sense and give me something to think about so thank you.

Personally I think it’ll sell in decent numbers given the (by today’s standard) low cost of one. I’m sure they’d be quite a nice ride, probably nothing to inspiring but “nice” all the same 🤷???... as you said in one of your previous posts Ian, if they hadn’t called it a gold star it might have even sold in bigger numbers. Gold star is a big name to live up to. Still when you look at the Enfield singles and now the twins, they sell in decent numbers, I think in part because of their low purchase price.
