My Father-In-Law (he is 64) told me the story about his Lambretta scooter he had as a young lad about town...took it into his parents kitchen to fit all the new chrome mirrors, horns, bump guard things etc. and was proud of his few hours handy work....only to the find he had to take it all off again as it wouldn't fit back through the door!!
