  1. Yes, I’m restoring a Scout and helping with a second restoration. We’re keen to see if there are any spares lurking in people’s workshops that may help us.
  2. Hi I'm looking for any WW2 Humber FWD parts, specifically Scout car but heavy utility too. Drive train, axles, wheels, PLM mount. Any parts considered, cash waiting. PM me. Thanks Ben
  3. Hopefully something will turn up. If we have to make one then perhaps we can help others out at the same time.
  4. Hi We’re looking for a PLM, Bren mount, either complete or parts of a mount. Anything considered, all help and information greatly received. Cash waiting or perhaps trades depending on your needs. Thanks Ben
  5. Hi Ron Good to chat a few days ago, the bike looks marvellous and I’m very much looking forward to seeing it in the flesh (after the ransom has been paid😉), very pleased with the end result. Thank you. Thank you to Rik and Jan for their help too, without their help I wouldn’t be in a position to have the bike, Jan’s research into these early Royal Enfields is a benefit for everyone. Ron, thanks again for restoring the bike and posting the progress here for others to share. Ben
  6. Thank you Ron. Looking better and better with every update👍🏻
  7. The north coast of France or Belgium seems sensible?
  8. Looking great, really starting to come together now, thanks Ron.
  9. Sorry they took a little longer than they’d said it’d take but it sounds like it turned out well in the end.
  10. It’s coming along really nicely, thank you. Dod Jan know about the stand? Could be something new to add to the file! Ben
  11. Hi Jan Thanks for posting the History side of things. I know you thoroughly went over C68153 after you picked it up, Ron has the list you prepared. I hope to have yours and mine sat besides each other in Dunkirk in a few years time. Good idea about opening the exhaust out, that would certainly be a good way of repairing it and getting it re-plated. All the best Ben
  12. The ammeter is a replacement as it had a much more modern French type fitted when found, same goes for the speedo.
  13. Sounds very positive about the engine, that’s great news! At the minute the only markings we can be sure of are the painted census numbers. I’ll have to have a think about any markings...... it’s a shame there wasn’t anything left on the tank, they’d given it a good rub down to get the civilian paint a good finish The Scout doesn’t have any permanent unit markings just the T number. Perhaps if if I can find a unit that had Scouts, WD/C and a CDSW 18 pdr gun tractor I could mark them up all the same. 🤔
  14. Hi Ron Thanks for taking it on. Really looking forward to watching your progress. I’ll dig the rear reg plate out today and see how much of the original census number was under the more modern top layers.
