Just to confirm what some of you may have suspected for some time?

BXclub Wakefield has now closed. This is partly due to changing interests.

I'd like to thank those of you who have supported me since I've known you and hope I've managed to help one or two of you as well.

Kind regards

Ken.

I whole heartedly agree with these sentiments. Your expertise and advice is second to none and has always been generously and humorously given. This forum will definitely be a poorer place without you.

I hope you`re not leaving this forum either Ken. It`s not just the masses of help you`ve given us all, but the fact that honest, decent and witty people are a rare commodity these days. There can`t be a current or former user of this forum who hasn`t benefitted from your presence, and I hope you stay around to keep us educated and amused. Best of luck whatever you do mate.

May I echo the sentiments of Billy in particular. Ken, you have my sincere gratitude for your friendly help and guidance with regard to my eBay BX, which you also very kindly fettled for me, and which is still going strong after 6 months of ownership!

All my best wishes for your move and for the future,

Mark.

Many thanks for the kind words.

I'm not giving up on BXs competely but will have to cut down the number of hours I spend on here in order to concentrate on other things.

I will still be on from time to time.

Not in the slightest.

Just as a matter of interest, does anyone know "which is the only automobile mentioned in the bible?" :o
