These will be more of a car horn sound, where the ELF likely has a buzzer type, similar to moped horns. But these are cheap & flashy chrome.

Well, isn't oompah-pah a popular sound from it's homeland?

Yep, a "buzzer" style. If you want to look/sound OE, get one off a moped or small motorcycle and it'll look almost identical to the original. I prefer more of a "muscle" sound myself, as my Massey 1010 has the buzzer type, and it sounds whimpy. But, to stay as close to original as possible, then whimpy horn it is. :smilewink:

I've got one like this in the cupboard. It's got enough muscle, to let you know when I cross the border. :thumbs:

But I think I'll keep it OE.

Hi Will this is what I tried to send via the messenger, If someone can tell me how to attach photos to a PM i would be grateful.

Will is this what you meant by backrest? the radius shown is best guess.

Seat area small with dims.JPG

On the rear there is another pressed bit bolted on with the lights and reflectors

Rear small with dims.JPG

This rear piece is pressed with a 7/16" folded edge on the top and sides

Again what i tried to PM

I Will sort some pics of the air filter and exhaust soon.

All i have done so far is get the cast aluminium grill surround welded

Welded grill surround small.jpg

Buy an 8' x 4' sheet of punched hole mesh to replace the shortened grill, i could not find a supplier to sell a smaller size but it is a perfect match to the original

Strip and paint front axle and replace wheel bearings

I haven't played with them yet, but, with the 3 wires, they must be hi/lo


Correct, Do you still have the original Bosch ignition switch? turn the key left is lo to the right is high and push on the key cranks the dynostartor.

The Horn is also a Bosch unit i can get a close up pic and see if there are any numbers on it

Horn small.jpg

Numbers are
A7108
HO/FCH
AGREE TPAR 379 380
IGM 0877 KA

After taking the photo I hooked it up to the battery to see what it sounds like - Silence it doesn't work

Thanks for the pics and info Gav.
Do you have a description of sorts, of that perforated grill? What size holes, and what the pattern is called
by the manufacturer?

I don't have that original switch. I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
