I have still got this: Compurobot George - The Old Robot's Web Site
Last time I came across it in the attic I think it was still working...
I wonder if the Amstrad CPC will make a come back. I've got one with loads of games in my loft.
I found details on the ol' Interweb - It was called the Raleigh Vektar. A BMX with a computer running down the middle. I remember the more expensive ones had radio's and they looked pretty cool in black.
Never owned one. As a kid I alway wanted to get hold of one and remove that center console to put on my Mountain bike
oh GODS, I recall those....
Oooo, love trips down memory lane - I loved my Astro Wars:
And my Battlestar Galactica game:
Nothing like shooting red leds with red leds.....

I'm on the look out for a working Video Master Star Chess:
Wasted hours playing it.
And not forgetting:
With the light gun......that only worked when it was dark or you closed the curtains......
Grrr, LEA firewall blocking ahhhhh...
Can't see the pic Matt, is it similar to this?
I used to play this with an old school mate. We used to shot around corners by aiming at the other player through a mirror
Originally had the CPC 464 with green screen, then a CPC6128 with colour monitor and the GX4000 Games Console.
Purchased the Amstrad TV Modulator to turn the colour monitor into a TV, a 3.5" 720K FDD and a Multiface-2 freezer cartridge.
Looked forward every month to Amstrad Action, manually typing in 1 or 2 full pages of code
Also remember a coupler modem (connect phone handset to it) being advertised in the magazine by [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prestel"]Prestel[/ame] and trying to convince my parents to purchase it.
I remember contributing to a Fanzine Magazine called A-OK, i did the games cheat section...god that's a blast from the past.....
I can see this thread getting very full (of pictures) so you might as well all lock the door, take the phone of the hook and head over here

Bizarrely, quite recently I got a letter at my parents from someone who was trying an old game out and had dug around for assistance.
I vaguely remember A-OK. If you did the cheats there, I probably used them.
For most of it's life AA was a very well written and enjoyable mag. At one time I had almost every issue stashed away along with the quality covertapes
