I am sure many of our members know of Classic Moped Spares based in Taunton, Somerset; suppliers of, amongst other things, VeloSolex, Peugeot, Puch and Motobecane parts. Well, their fame may spread a little wider after this month when they are to appear on national television!
Malcolm Corrigan from Classic Moped Spares has been in touch to say they will feature in the Channel 4 television show ‘Find It, Fix It, Flog It’ in which the show’s presenters, Henry Cole and Simon O’Brien, travel across the UK to find items to fix up and flog for profit … in this case – you guessed! – a moped. To this end, they are aided by Malcolm at Classic Moped Spares. The screening date for the episode is 25th September 2017, with a proposed screening time of 3pm (although the time may change due to network programming). So, look out for it – and set those video recorders!
As a keen enthusiast of all things small capacity, ‘Moped Malc’ is looking forward to the show generating some good publicity and increased UK interest in mopeds generally. What are we likely to see? Well, after all the fun of filming, Malcolm has not seen the final edited version but is sure it will be entertaining and, hopefully, encourage people to restore their mopeds … and, if they go on to ‘flog it’, let’s hope it ends up in the small ads in ‘Buzzing’!!
