This 'unit' Thunderbird featured on the cover and in a lengthy article, 'Bikini Bikes', in Real Classic magazine (April 2011 edition, pages 26-34). 'DCX 88C' has had four owners from new and is said to be reliable, easy starting and in generally good running order, ready to use. We are advised that the side panels, mudguards, etc were repainted in the correct Silver Sheen colour in 2006 but otherwise the black painted cycle parts are in original, unmolested condition. The tyres and stainless wheel rims are new. The machine is offered with green continuation logbook (issued 1971), a quantity of expired MoTs dating back to 2004 and old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents.
