The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Retrofest

Just like to thank Mathew for all his efforts. First time at Retrofest and had a brilliant weekend despite the weather which wasn’t nearly as bad as we expected. Nice to meet other members and looking forward to meeting others next year or sooner.

Re: Window covers .

I saw a chap with a Portafold at a car show recently. He had car sun roof wind deflectors on his. They looked good. He got them from China. Might be worth a look.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Hi, I can’t tell you the size but if you knock the races out there will be a number stamped on them. You will be able to get them on line from someone like bearing boys. Hope this helps.

Re: 11th International Gathering of Portafolds & Ansfolds (2019)

Hi Mathew, having completed the 600 mile round trip to the Isle of Man and back I have every confidence we can get it to this event this year. If you still have room for us. Last year was very unfortunate due to a family bereavement .
Please remind me how to pay

Re: Hydraulic brakes

Well the brakes have been tested and work well. The handbrake and over run brake remains unchanged. I had to make one change. Mini handbrake cable has springs on the ends. I found out these are to keep the handbrake leaver off and the cable tight. Without this the drums get hot and cause the brakes ...

A frame question

Hi all, playing with the Portafold on the back of my Trike I found it’s a nightmare to reverse mainly due to the very short A frame. Has anyone ever found the need to lengthen there A frame. It would also lower the nose weight .

Re: Hydraulic brakes

Yes, that’s the plan. I’ve cut the cable and have drilled a 4mm hole through an m8 bolt which will act as a clevis on the original compensator.
Thanks. Probably wouldn’t have thought about it had you not have pointed it out.
