Looks like a thoroughly appealing wee car man and pretty comfy.

One of these is on my bucket list. When* I win the roffle for the forum bike I'll at last be able to sample the wonders of AX ownership. I think the beauty is in the simplicity. Well bought!

Yeah. The lad I bought it from was a fan of AXs because you can fix them with a spanner.

You can adjust the clutch with a spanner, you can adjust the brakes with a spanner, it's as basic as you could get brand new in 1996 I should have thought.

Everything I can think of in terms of criticism:

Dent on bonnet, dent on drivers front wing.
Drivers side rear door doesn't lock/unlock with central locking.
Lots of scratches, some touched up badly.
Paint fade on spoiler/roof/bonnet.
Looks to run hot on the gauge but fan kicks in as it should and there's no overheating. It's been said that they all do that sir. Clutch slips a little bit if you're really aggressive with your gear changes. Bites fine and operates fine under regular driving conditions. Has bogged down a bit and tried to die twice since I've had it. Both times has been just after start up and I've caught it with the throttle and gave it a bit rev and then it's been fine after that. Bought new HT leads but not fitted.

Located South Shields, not too far from Newcastle. NE34 postcode.

£300 shitter price.


No roffles. I won't be running any more roffles. I still haven't been paid fully for the last roffle I ran and really can't be arsed with the prospect of chasing after adults for monies owed.

I'm sorry to hear you haven't been paid, Jimble Sale, bloody poor show that. Your roffles have always been both ace and very poplier, we'll all miss out as a result of someone not paying now.

Aye that's bad patter that. I love roffles. I also love Renner 19s. Maybe next time.

I think if someone else is running a roffle a quick pm to another recent roffler to check for any non payers might be wise. That way it keeps it from being a name and shame but also stops the delinquent party from buying any more tickets.

I'd have been right up for an R19 roffle.

Poor show on adults who don't pay up. They don't deserve your poo counts.

For £300 this is the bargain of the year, it's a cracking little thing to drive - plenty poke, lovely handling. I like the noise as well. Someone get it bought pronto.

(Two randoms if it ends up going that way.)

Jim has said I can run one and give him the £ in one go. No draw until I have all the money, so I can give it to him.

£300/59=£5 a pop, I'll top the last one up to make up for some of the petrol I'm using.

Someone on a computer stick the numbers down and allocate the requested numbers please.

Sorry to hear previous roffle payment as been lacking.
