Ciao ! Since few days I'm the new owner of a nice Sinclair C5. It's Dec '84, a two batteries model ! With a lot of accessories: - horn - mirrors - indicators - high-vis mast - mud flaps But I need a new cap for a rear wheel.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

That's a well documented journey to collect your C5, and the C5 itself is very neat and with all the accessories too you got a bargain

I like your collection of retro computers too, if you're ever back in the south of England I've got a couple of commodore PET's and old Sinclair computers hanging around in need of a home.

Enjoy yourself on the streets of Italy in the C5!

Could you just loosen the handlebar by undoing the bolt a little and tapping it so the wedge drops out underneath and, whilst holding the front wheel just gently straighten it out?
