So as Andrew found an example. I got lucky today & found this. A lad we know picked it up a few weeks ago & decided its not for him. Hopefully I will get it in the new year as will be picked up by fellow collector Iain & stored for a while.

 

Only got this pic atm, Comes with a tiller & deck. Engine is free but dyno start is missing so will be on the hunt for one when I tinker with it

I am really pleased you ended up with this Chris. I am looking forward to picking it up for you and having a closer look. I will take some pictures.

 

 

Both Andrew and Chris ending up with 850's within a week, great stuff :dancingbanana:

Well at least you have a dyno start. Or you could sell it to me along with the snow plough :dancingbanana:

 

How easy will it be to find a dyno???

That will make a nice Xmas present for Chris! Did his wife buy it for him? Ha ! Ha!

By the way Iain, what make is your 3 wheeled trailer. Ifor Williams? James? That's one serious bit of kit that.

It would be good to hear from Chris about what his wife thinks about it.

Andrew, the trailer is an Ifor Williams LM146 - 14x6ft. Chris has an identical trailer, the trailer of choice for UK Bolens collections :-)
