  1. £23,625 Bonhams : 1923 Tilling-Stevens Charabanc Bus
  2. Shouldn't be too difficult to re-frame a bike, or re-chassis a car and get it registered, but we all know what DVLA are like!! Vehicle registration: Rebuilt vehicles - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) A rebuilt vehicle can keep its original registration number if you can prove you’ve used: the original unmodified chassis or bodyshell (car or light van) a new chassis or monocoque bodyshell of the same specification as the original (car or light van) the original unmodified frame (motorbike) a new frame of the same specification as the original (motorbike) You must also have 2 other major components from the original vehicle from the following lists. For cars or light vans: suspension (front and back) steering assembly axles (both) transmission engine For motorbikes: forks wheels engine gear box
  3. Nice. Start a new restoration thread and keep us updated, and please keep the pictures coming!
  4. I've never been there, but have heard from several sources that they can be very difficult to deal with. They apparently put stupidly high prices on things, and will often refuse to sell for no apparent reason!. Do they still have the second Scammell 100 tonner?
  5. What voltage is the battery showing if you check it with a multimeter? Black terminals are not a good sign, but I'd try cleaning them and recharging. You might be lucky. As others have said, batteries don't like being left for too long without being charged, so might be time for a replacement.
  6. I suppose it depends if you have secure storage with mains power where the vehicle is stored. If you do, then Optimate type chargers are brilliant, and can be connected to the battery in situ with crocodile clips and left charging indefinitely. But if the vehicle is outside, or away from mains power, removing the battery to charge elsewhere is the best option. I'd definitely recommend an Optimate charger though. Mine has paid for itself several times over.
  7. They are basically just a big oil lamp, so search for oil lamp wick, or paraffin lamp wick. Loads out there, but I can't see any 30mm round. There are some larger flat ones, or feeding a load of smaller round ones into a tubular wick might work. Old (non-nylon) rope would probably work too.
  8. I can't find anything stating that permission must be obtained for using black and white plates. Where have you seen that? I can only see that the vehicle must be pre-1980 and in the Historic Taxation class.
  9. A bit more detail on their website, but not much: Fiat Pavesi P4/100 Artillery Tractor of c.1920s SO390 - Berrybrook Steam & Classics
  10. Also worth trying the South Yorkshire Transport Museum. I think Peak1 might be involved with them. South Yorkshire Transport Museum | Facebook
  11. Have you seen this thread? Looks like it was owned by a member called Peak1 from Sheffield back then. Don't know if they are still active on here though?
  12. Probably not military, but this picture has been posted on the local Then and Now Facebook page. Can anyone identify the 1921 truck? https://www.facebook.com/groups/bristolthenandnow/permalink/1421639378041427/
  13. Their Facebook page says "Due to COVID the Heartland Museum will be closed until 11/12/2020. Sadly, the Veterans' Day Parade will be canceled this year. Stay safe!" https://www.facebook.com/heartlandmuseum/
  14. Looks like it might be the The National Automobile Museum in Reno. This link says "After the HATM closed, a portion of the collection was donated to our Museum and is currently stored in a local warehouse." https://automuseum.org/?event=a-video-tour-of-the-hays-antique-truck-collection-august-second-thursday-talk Even if they didn't get the Riker, they might know where it went.
  15. Think it's one of these. Also known as a Bog Frog:
