Well lovely people, I took your advice and went to see Ian at Riva last week; mainly to get a little advice but mostly for a bit of a window shop, as everything on his website was a bit pricey for me.... or so I thought! When I got there he had just got in an 80's Dart which he hadn't even opened up yet, so I was there for the unveiling. It's in really good condition, has its original awning and most importantly is in my price bracket - Hurrah
I've put down a deposit and should be in full ownership of my first ever Dandy in a few weeks time, when its had a little tidy up - can't wait! I'm really pleased with the price and knowing that its been fully serviced before I get it gives me extra peace of mind.
So I will no doubt be in touch again very soon to brag and ask loads more advice about getting started - Thanks again for making me sooooo welcome and the help so far
