  1. Hi All I am looking for a Dash for my T16, mine is completely missing so anything considered Thanks!
  2. Thanks, I wasn't sure I should with it being US, I do need to get around to advertising it on Facebook though
  3. Decided to sell my Ben Hur Trailer. Nice overall condition, canvas is basically new, handbrake works and has a spare wheel and bargrip tyre Lights are postwar and currently not working, also the sprung loaded pin for the jockey wheel is replaced with a bolt but thats it. Tows nice, towed it behind my land rover a few times too. Perfect for putting a motorcycle in the back and also big enough to sleep in. £1200 but open to offers Located near Colchester
  4. Spent the other day helping recover a Morris C8 for a friend. Took most of a day to clear the route of old wood and rubbish so we could tow it out. Amazingly the tyres pumped back up and with a few attempts she rolled out She looks pretty original apart from the Harvey Frost crane although pretty battered and fairly rotten. Does anyone know anything about the front wheels? I didnt get a close up picture but they are not the usual split rim but have a locking ring like the GMCs etc.
  5. Hi all I got this canvas with a load of other bits and pieces form a bloke who used to own a Bedford QL and apparently this came with it but he did not know what the function was. Dont suppose anyone has any ideas? Of course it might not be Bedford at all! Has some markings but cannot really make anything out Thanks!
  6. As if I didn't have enough on the go at the moment, these came up and I couldn't resist! 1940 Ariel WNG and a 1940 Matchless G3WO. Both projects but come pretty much all the essential bits and pieces. Being mainly a BSA person I don't know much at all really about Ariel and Matchless so any pointers in the right direction for parts, records etc. would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Trying out my new subframe thanks to thedawnpatrol
  8. Been a while since an update. Finished it off a couple of months ago but forgot to update here. Also now sold unfortunately but is staying in the family
  9. Just realised how long it has been since an update. Started getting back in the swing of it again a couple of months ago (other projects had taken priority). Chassis has been split and is in the process of being cleaned and then can be reassembled with a few cross-members still needing to be made up
  10. Giving the Welbike a well earned going over. Stripping right back down to bare metal and etch priming and will finalize with some Service Brown. Also gives me an excuse to add details such as a more accurate tank number and the black behind the transfers.
  11. Had a great time, thanks to all involved. Even my break down was caught on camera! Didn't miss a beat on the Sunday even in all the rain!
  12. Will be there with the M20 :thumbsup:
  13. Hi all Picked this up at the car boot the other week, looks like it could be something official, maybe fire service or home office related? But cannot find anything like it online. Any ideas?
  14. In Belgium for near on 2 weeks and unfortunately it clashes. Would have liked to have gone, was a good show last year
  15. Went last year, unfortunately going to miss it this year. A great set up and very well run! Well worth a go
  16. Spotted this in an old magazine today
  17. Got the Welbike out again yesterday. Is looking a bit tired and needs a spruce up so that will be my evening job over the next few weeks
  18. Found a couple more of the canvas compass pouches and one webbing one, if anyone was interested they could be up for grabs :-)
  19. Thanks! Its not perfect but should be good fun
  20. Sump is back together and so is the gearbox. Just need to fit everything back on including the front wheel and brakes which needed repairs
  21. Starting to look a bit smarter, windscreen in
  22. Bought a new jack for the bike which makes sump work especially 100 times easier! Oil pump has been thoroughly cleaned and now replaced. Just to sort the gearbox now :-)
