eBay watch: 1960s Raleigh RM6 motorised bicycle


If you fancy riding to work, but don't fancy the legwork, this 1960s Raleigh RM6 motorised bicycle could be for you.

Looking not unlike the many retro-styled bicycles we've featured on here in the past, the RM6 dates back to 1966 and according to the seller, is is 'exceptional condition for the year'. Beneath that vintage exterior lurks a 50cc engine, which should be nippy enough for town and city commuting, with a horn, lights and a newly-added rear carrier (not pictured) helping you along.

It's taxed and MOT'd, with the price right now at £50 should you fancy it for your commute.

Diane Goode London Cushions


Textile designer Diane Goode has created a beautiful series of hand painted London Cushions.

The cushions are made of silk, onto which the design has been painted, taking up to seven hours to complete. There are five designs to choose from, each one taking its name from a well-known London street and featuring a nostalgic image of London with red pillar boxes and phone booths. Pictured here is the Old Street design, a 50cm square cushion with a turquoise silk reverse and a design where a moped (could it be a Vespa?) sits by an old post box. Park Lane and Berkley Square are also square cushions with electric blue and black reverses respectively. The Kensington and Brick Lane designs are rectangular cushions (60cm by 40cm) and feature exquisite floral designs alongside the retro street scenes.

All of the London cushions are priced £83 and can be bought online from My Deco.
