    well if I get one in time and get it restored I just might do that ron but we will see need to get business goin first but as soon as ive got the funds I'm definitely gonna get a project and this does look like it could be the one for me. Ron It is that one haha I would have put a link to the ad in the first post but some forums are a little funny with that so I left it out but this is the sort of info I was looking for thanks ill keep shopping around till I find something i kinda like rummaging at jumbles anyway so that shouldn't be a problem thanks 79x100

    37 views and nobody's got any information :'( somebody out there must know something have I put this question in the wrong place or not been specific enough I've emailed the bloke this is what he said about it (hello. not seized, the crank was supposed to have been done some years ago at the start of the strip down, but dont hold me to it. it is loosely assembled for show.. it def needs a valve guide, prob piston rings. only half the carb is there. the drive and mag drive internals are loose in a box. all welds good, no rot. what chrome there is needs redoing. mag is good ive tested it with a drill and it sparks. all cleaned and primed so the dirty work done. come have a look.) I'd would really like this as a first project im in love with it but I'd like to know if the price is right as I'm not very clued up thanks luke
  9. Ok so if I was to start a project this would be it! I found one in some classifieds for £1750 doubt ill raise the funds before it goes but I think its a really sexy bike. dunno if this is a good price of not or how hard parts would be to track down. I did have a little scout around last night but didn't turn up alot but it was just a quick scout. Would it be difficult to find parts for this particular bike? thanks in advance
  10. Hi Iain. Fingers crossed I should be sorted by then so I should have plenty of material. :-D
  11. hey private mw thanks shane.c hi Michael I don't stock the canvas yet as I said I'm only just starting out but the vehicles I've worked on usually use recycled military canvas I can get hold of new olive green canvas but my minimun order is 500m and at present this isnt doable for me sorry I do have access to canvas but only basic colours I'm afraid once I'm a bit more established I will be able to buy bulk and keep stock of most colours. hope that helps
  12. hehe nice one cheers N.O.S nice to meet you :-D
  13. well maybe i could come and have a look as its not to far either maybe i can just restitch the seats if you like if the material is still in good nick?!
  14. hi Adrian Im near Bury St Edmunds thanks for the welcome hello Pete I've actually never made any seat covers I've put covers on pretty much everything else tho so I'm willing to give it a shot maybe we could make a mock up one first out of sum old material and see how it fitted?! also if you have a pattern I could take apart that would make things a whole lot easier thanks for the warm welcome every1 I think I could get used to hanging around here
  15. think ill hang around n see how this turns out I do like my motorbikes
  16. hi snort glad to be here already sifting though the great info on here. once I'm up and running smoothly ill be taking on something but for now I don't have the time money or knowledge but hopefully soon enough that should change a bit thanks for the welcome
  17. hi my names Luke Im 27. I've just started my own business working with canvas and p.v.c which I've been working with for 11 years. I've always had an interest in old vehicles and have canvassed a few old military Jeeps and trucks using recycled military tents ive also canvassed old morris's n the likes. I would love an old vehicle to restore but at the moment I'm putting all my efforts into starting my business so for the moment I'm just here to gather info on how to go about restoring an old military vehicle and to offer my services if I can as this is one of the areas of my job I'm most interested in. I also like mountain biking snowboarding and am planning to take up archery because I've always wanted to try that to. so id like to say pleased to meet you and how do you do.
