Still have to buy some Christmas presents this year and will have to face the mad rush of underprepared blokes in the city. But how about this for preperation. For Christmas 1982 and my 13th birthday my Father bought me a Diamond Back Silver Streak II from Armstrong cycles in Middlesbrough 22/24 Princes Road. He left a deposit on it (No! A monetary deposit!) on the 30th October and it was delivered and promptly hidden at Grandad's house on the 13th December.
