    Due to a slight accident - not my fault - I need a replacement rear bumper for the Carioca 656. Does anyone have an idea where this can be sourced. If this is not readily available, I will let the insurance deal with it. I also need a new bike rack but this is readily available. The other party will foot the bill.

    I assume from what you said , that you and the van are ok.

    Good luck with sourcing the parts Dave.[​IMG]

    The van was parked outside the house. Eds son in law hit it with his works van - low speed. Looks like just the bumper and bike rack need replacing. will have a better look later. I could not see any other damage when I looked this morning.

    Thanks all for you replies. On further inspaction of the van, it looks like it will be left to the insurance companies to sort out. One of the bottom bunk supports has moved about 2" and has split. That needs to be replaced. There is an inch long gash in the insulation where the support has dug into it. God knows what the damage would haved been if the bikes were on the back and the bottom bunk in the up posistion. It looks like it will cost well over £1000 to replace and repair everything.
