  1. I guess you're lucky! it's on page 35 of the 2-3 October Ruddington sales, lot No. 816. Land Rover 88 G.P. Vehicle (series 88/IIa) No sale price. Will make a scan tonight. Cheers, Lex
  2. Stanley, I have some unfired projo's for these, all A/T. tracer has been removed, let me know if interested. Was the AMX with Diesel engine modified by Sabiex from Belgium? I was once many years ago in their factory, where they were refurbishing them for the Mexican? army, a sight to see!! Cheers, Lex
  3. Here's mine that I acquired from the states, it came from an 8th Airforce vet in Florida, that "liberated"it from a UK airfield when he went home in their bomber after his tour was up. Restored a long time ago, and not running at the moment, but have all ignition parts, so should be able to get it running again, I Always call it "The Dying Flea" for obvious reasons. Cheers, Le
  4. Hello Kingsley, I know this bike, and the seller, he asked me to bring it over to the UK, but still unsure of when I'm coming over. If anyone needs the canvas grips for the throttle and clutch side, I had another batch made, same as on the restored bike above (that was from my prev. batch) you will have to glue a piece of canvas on yourself. The throttle clamp thingy is also in the making, but not the alu casting (yet) Cheers, Lex
  5. Alan, no, have not come accross any of that stuff, it was usually not sold to the public, but given to friendly countries I believe, most of that went through the Crown Agents. Cheers, Lex
  6. Hahaha! you can use that one made from tin foil, that I dropped off at Jan's place for you! Cheers, Lex PS, this might be the first part for an early Triumph for me! have started with worse bits.
  7. Very nice work, as usual! in the meantime I have bought this butchered original, maybe Jan has some reject pieces to make this whole again? Cheers, Lex
  8. Ok, Gary, sorry have no ino at all on those, but there is some restoration pages on one somewhere here?? Cheers, Lex
  9. Gary, do you mean the US one, as pictured below, or the Brit 2 wheeled one?? Cheers, Lex
  10. The vehicles are usually Ok, but axis uniforms is "not done" Cheers, Lex
  11. John, this one: "dkw nz and rt serie WW2" Cannot seem to post the link here, but copy and paste, you'll have to become a member though. Cheers, Lex ps, Alex Smittens on FB.
  12. Ok, just found this on Facebook, not strictly motorcycles, but still….. Start is outside Carentan. Cheers, Lex
  13. Just replied on the Kradrider page, and have seen a big group with German bikes in the past too, but think they're all French? they only do their own French forums etc, never much on English speaking forums etc. A shame really, but 80% just cannot speak anything else than French. Cheers, Lex
  14. Yes, and Martyn doesn't like the quality of their parts..... he makes his own, usually cheaper too. Cheers, Lex
  15. Martyn Bratby still does very good work, takes some time, but worth the wait, no email or computer, Ron will have his phone number handy? below a carby he did for me. Cheers, Lex
  16. Very nice Jan!! and I've seen him in action with the english wheel, even removed dents out of my Norton B4 sidecar mudguard!! keep up the good work!! Cheers, Lex
  17. Just found out the front wheel on the WD-C is Thriumph Speed Twin!! this bike is getting cheaper by the month! Cheers, Lex
  18. Hi all, While scanning the last of the Matchless motorcycle Key Cards, I came across an odd one, and thought I'd share it here aswell as on Facebook, would be nice if someone's Austin was on here! Cheers, Lex
  19. Wow, wouldn't mind one of those!! and I had the radiator badge for a long time. (on my 1939 model 704S) Also a period picture. Cheers, Lex
  20. Regarding repro's, the above Dutch seller also had a so called "Flea" for sale, with a bogus story, and high price, but the fact was, it wasn't even a Flea!! it was a Swedish NV Bolagen, a Royal Enfield engined postwar bike, I only have the pictures from before they painted it green, but the frame, forks, wheels etc. are very different ! Hope nobody bought it, as that was a nasty piece of conwork! Cheers, Lex
  21. Ok, we'll see!! have fun tomorrow! don't forget the rubbers!! Rob is ever so slow. Cheers, Lex
  22. No Ron, it's a Hungarian calender, so don't know who she is?? you should have her telephone number, and inside leg mesurements for sure??? Anyway, only a Hardley Ablesone….. Cheers, Lex
  23. Hahaha, it's a Dutch number plate, but don't know the gal??, will ask on some dutch forums!! Cheers, Lex
  24. welbike


    Yes, it's not 40's, it's a 1950's New-Map, with a French AMC engine in it, that was used in more makes, nothing military at all as far as I know. Hope this helps, Lex
  25. Nice progress Ron, but you can still buy the whole pillion rear grip stuff NOS in the states, think I bought it before from Rocky. Looking forward to see the bike in the flesh! do you have the contract plate too? Cheers, Lex
