Pye Cambridge.

Post by daxi on Thu Jan 08, 2009 10:09 pm

I was given a Pye Cambridge last night.
The current idea is (& it's the reason I went for the Cambridge & not the Westminster that was also on offer, ) is that I want to mount it on my Velocette LE.
I know crystals are still available & cost around 15, but little else about these radios, does anyone know sources for bits, crystals etc ? I will do some googling myself, but if someone already has a Cambridge or a Westminster & a supplier they can recommend, then that would be preferable.

The velocette, for those who do not know, is a late 50's to early 70's motorcycle, that was used by the Police in the 1960's.
Mine is an ex Gloustershire Police bike & I want the radio to add to the authentic look of the bike.

Looks really amazing indeed, and a credit to you for the work it must take to keep it looking so good
