  1. now de-cluttering and deciding i can't do all the projects - here's an opportunity to source the fundamentals for a flatbed or box restoration project Some parts of the two trailers have been bodged ; however i think there's enough parts to make a trailer that would look great behind the right vehicle - I have no idea what that would be !
  2. Hi, I'm decluttering also - selling two very similar trailers on Ebay ....
  3. Well now im making a front towing bracket for the Eager Beaver - this should allow me to shunt trailers about easily and more accurately than having them at the back end of the EB ! all parts cut and ready to weld up this stay at home saturday.
  4. Ok, So anyone have any tips on how to reverse one of these behind an Eager Beaver ?
  5. Hi All, I am seeking any information, particularly the weight, of the 5 ton , 'air portable' trailer that was used with the Eager Beaver. I believe these were made by Brockhouse & Co, West Bromwich. They have brakes on only the rear axle - whats the view on the legality of towing on the road behind an Eager Beaver? ( as if one would be brave enough!!) Many thanks Dave
  6. Hi Mark, It looks very smart now! After visiting Jason in Glastonbury we continued to mid wales where we ended up buying this EB for my friends landscaping business... I do wonder how restoration of 01FU19 is going.... I suspected and now have confirmation: It's a very early example! Great if you could pm me the contact details - or have the new order reply here!! Eager Beavers are awesome! Dave
  7. Hi Pete, Did you get this trailer ? I recently purchased a generator from near Glastonbury and with it came a 2401/A trailer ( that i have only just identified as such having cleaned the name plate)... Reg 64BK85 did you find out any more about these trailers ? It's in pretty poor condition, with 9 x 20 tyres... - the wheels are 8 stud on what seems to be 10 1/2 PCD (EB wheels ( dunlop aluminium split rims?) are 8 stud on what looks like 10 3/4" PCD - as such i don't think they would be interchangeable) One day it may be restored and towed behind my Eager Beaver ... Whilst i
  8. Hi, I saw this Eager Beaver in Glastonbury a year ago, in a poor state. Have heard recently it has been sold and in now undergoing restoration some where near Bodmin ?? I'd like to get in contact with the new owner and wondered if he may be on this forum ?? Kind Regards David
  9. Actually, with a few hoops to jump through and the mislaying of some of my original letters from DES for a couple of months ( I got them back in the end) I found DVLA helpful when re registering my Eager Beaver as Historic from Agricultural. They are going through a phase of rationalization as some cars newly manufactured in South America were being registered here as 'historic' which they clearly were not. The FBHVC (Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs) are doing some great work with DVLA to ensure genuine historic vehicles are correctly registered. I'll let you know how i get on wit
  10. Here in Waverley, Surrey I tried very hard to persuade our local council not to demolish a building housing 4 squash courts, as the were fully booked each evening by people who wanted to play squash. I got Sport England involved, Enqlish Squash and Raquetball wrote to the 'Chief Executive' pointing out the benefits in participation in Sport, I wrote to my Local MP Jeremy Hunt (I think i pointed out the health benefits!!) who dismayed me greatly by not supporting my campaign but standing behind the 'portfolio holder' Councillor who had history of closing courts and converting to profitable danc
  11. When are we starting an owners club for EB owners and those interested ?
  12. Ah like this trailer ? this has two 13" wheels and two 15.3" wheels. Did you get any 13" tyres made in the end ? Dave
  13. Hi, Can anybody help identify this Noise Attenuated Generator ? It's quite recent, manufactured in 1985, and has a Conventry Climax engine powering it. I spotted it in January when on hunting expedition for an Eager Beaver and ended up picking it up from near Glastonbury earlier this month. Keen to understand more about it's history - could it have been Medical use ? Hope to have it running soon !! Thanks David
  14. Hi Shane, I have recently acquired a Coventry Climax powered generator, also 6KVA - this one is noise attenuated and made by AIR-LOG Ltd. I wondered if it was the same as yours ? Thanks David
  15. Hi Nick, How are you getting on with your Eager Beaver ? Kind Regards David
