  1. Have a chat with Phil of the Mat & Milly Club he's very knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, with a good idea of the spares situation. I've PM'd you his 'phone number. I'm sure other forum members, who are Matador owners, will be able to leave more helpful posts than mine in answer to your request. Good luck. http://www.aecmilitant.co.uk/contact/home.html Well, it doesn't sound as far gone as this one.
  2. Ewok, I certainly do like her. What a beautiful motorcycle. It's superbly equipped and a real credit to you. I look forward to seeing more pictures of this lovely BSA when you have the time. The 'photo you've just posted is now my screen saver. Cheers.
  3. Welcome to the forum Tom. Being picked up from school in a Jeep.........how cool is that ? I wish that had happened to me. :-(
  4. 6 X 6

    Scrap yards

    Some very interesting stuff in there. Not your average scrap yard. I wonder what the story behind this place is. Thanks for posting.
  5. It's all part of the punishment. Welcome to the forum.
  6. Welcome to the forum Rob. And thanks for posting that great 'photo of your LR driving through....er....well.... whatever it is....... I hope you didn't have to get out and push. There's a section for trailers if you would like to post pix of your trailers and plenty of interest in LR's on the forum.
  7. Oh, thank you. I'll have to start looking at Pioneers more closely.
  8. Younggun, have you got a T-bar as shown stowed centrally on this Scammell ? I've never actually seen one but they must be, or have been, around. Thanks. Not a clear picture but it's the only one I've got. There must be a huge amount of stress where the bars meet and form the ' T '.
  9. Welcome to the forum Brodie. Is there a particular type of 6 x 6 that you have your eye on ? If you can narrow it down a bit I'm sure there are people on this forum who could make suggestions as to the best place to look. Buying in the UK maybe cheaper than buying in the Euroweaslezone due to the exchange rate. Cheers.
  10. Extrogg, thanks for posting these Milly pix. I always think one 'in service' photograph is worth a thousand taken of a preserved vehicle at a show.
  11. Richard, thanks for mentioning that. I wouldn't be surprised if the Militant you refer to left the show scene and was put back to work. If it did, it wouldn't be the only Militant Mk 1, I can think of two, that were thought to be safely in preservation but were 'lost'.
  12. You Rotter ! All these years I've been dreaming about this Martin's Militant tipper only to find out it's not a proper one. You could have broken the news a bit more sensitively. Plan 'B' is to steal Will's tipper one night.....but only after he's restored it. http://www.hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?t=11923
  13. It would be very interesting to see any more 'photos you may have. I'm still looking to match the two Constructors in the pix you posted with any I know of that have survived. Thanks also for the Facebook tip.
  14. I still have the telephone number of someone called Martin who was selling a Militant tipper for £800 near Heathrow many years ago. I think that like most tippers, they got worked to death, and then scrapped. That's what makes Will's Albion, with it's super cool headlight plinths, so unusual.
  15. Thank you very much for posting this wonderful photograph. A Militant tipper is top of my list of desirable lorries and the tipper is one of the rarest Militant Mk 1 variants in preservation. The 6 X 4 in the 'photo was about 20 years old when this picture was taken. I wonder if it survived.
  16. Impressive craftsmanship. Keep posting. I found one of these, complete, original and still with the ignition key in the ignition in a barn some years ago. A sweet looking motor.
  17. Wasn't that meant to happen ? .........I'd assumed CW had activated one of his smokescreen generators.
  18. Very nice Andy. I half expected Jack Hawkins or John Mills to suddenly appear. Top Stuff !
  19. Wanting to do something before one dies is pretty persuasive in itself. What vehicle will you be acquiring ?
  20. I've come over all funny and have had to go and have a lay down.
  21. Hey Ewok, I keep reminding everyone on here that I can remember that, back in the 1960's, Pride and Clark in Brixton, London were selling these wonderful WM20's brand new, in wooden crates, for £25. Yes, I'm that old. Welcome to the forum. It would be nice to see some pix of your BSA sometime. Cheers.
