I'm going to go down to 1 car for a while, I plan to move house in the next few months and in order to pretend I'm a financially solvent and mortgageworthy individual I'm gonna cut insurance/tax costs and pay off my credit cards.
As such pretty much everything is for sale.
First up: 1993 Vespa T5 classic / PX125
Reg K113GTO for the MOT history crew. MOT is till 10th November but can put a new one on if you're bothered.
Acquired from our very own Cavcraft in a swap for my CBR death machine, this is a T5 classic, (T5 engine in a PX frame), where someone has removed the T5 engine in it and put a PX engine in.
All standard except for:
Indian "5 port" 150cc top end kit (original parts supplied)
SIP Road 2 exhaust (original included but it's fucked)
Carb jetted to suit
Paintwork is shonky, I couldn't get a colour match at my paint shop so have painted it in a Peugeot colour that is not quite there, I have painted 80% of the frame so some bits don't match other bits and I did approx. zero prep so the finish is lumpy.
Basically it's in need of that old chestnut cosmetic TLC, but is rot free and rides GR8, the road exhaust means it has a nice flat torque curve like a proper Vespa and it will pull 17st me up hills at 30-40 no problem, top speed is about 50-55, I'm not really sure as the speedo is hilariously inaccurate.
I'd like £1500, could deliver within about an hour's drive of Huddersfield, would consider a very cheap 2 wheeled part ex like an auto scooter.
Next up: 2001 Alfa 156 2.4JTD Sportwagon
Reg FJ51CGO for the MOT history crew, MOT till 29th June 2018.
Got this as an MOT failure and then welded up the o/s/r sill and rear floorpans for MOT along with a new bottom wishbone on the front o/s and a few other bits. Welding is a proper job with the rot cut out and repair sections made up, the actual welding is cosmetically poor but it's all covered by a sideskirt. I did some pretty extensive derusting and undersealing to the rest of the underside while I was there so hopefully it should be good for a few more years without more welding.
Has done 209k miles but interior is ace, properly sexytime mint.
Exterior generally OK but all 4 arches have been touched up, by me, it's metallic paint and I've blended in the repairs with skill levels ranging from shite to shocking.
Drives A1 but it's in need of a wheel bearing, think it's n/s/r, the rear bearings are pretty easy to do I'm told and only cost about £20. The bearing is singing away and there are some knocks from the suspension over bumps which are almost certainly drop link or ARB bush related, despite this I would be happy to drive it anywhere. Last tank got me 42mpg which was 70% round town, and the rest motorway. Has an an invoice for cambelt done at 178k.
After £500 cash or would ROFFLE for £8/ticket if there's any interest?
Will get some up to date pics of both added to the thread soon.
