Two prototype mini-bikes, isued to Stratford-on-Avon Post Office to see if they were any better than conventional machines, have been rejected ny the postmen. The mini-machines, they say, are not a sgood nor as practical as the old bikes which over the years have been modified whith such things as special carriers and strengthened pedals. The bikes, as seen in our photograph, were issued to Stratford Post Office in April this year - the first town in the Midlands to get them - and the experiment should have lasted for a year but the staff were not impressed and asked for the experiment to be stopped.28th October 1967
