WHEN Arthur Carter tried to sell his motorbike, the self-confessed "child of the 60s" had no idea he would kick-start a three-month legal nightmare.
Mr Carter, 55, of Saxmundham, ended up in court after showing a potential buyer his motorcycle.
When a driver pulled up outside his home and told him he needed to wear a helmet, Mr Carter made a quip which ended with him embroiled in a bizarre legal battle.
"I said, 'I don't need a helmet, I'm a child of the 60s!' It was a jokey comment," he said.
