  1. Didn't someone on here build this or one just like it? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1995-Citroen-AX-1-6-16v-VTS-TRACK-CARSLEEPER-5-door-Hatchback/193386472337?hash=item2d06bb6391:g:yo0AAOSwDVVecPKX Ruffgeezer?
  2. That changes regularly - though I reckon something older or older looking perhaps. I like the look of naked bikes. Current ebay watchlist is quite varied: Suzuki GS650GT https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/suzuki-gs650-gt-1982-project/114170726762?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 gs650gt I like the style of this one and do quite fancy a bit of project Honda VFR 750 because of the noise and general capability (so I've read) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-vfr-750/324125700069?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 VFR750 Virago 500 - I like the style, plus v-twin noise is always good https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1983-XV-500-VIRAGO-CUSTOM-CRUISER-BOBBER-25028-MILES-12-MONTHS-MOT-DELIVERY/254555693666?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 virago 500 And a Suzuki SV650. Took my Mod 1 on one of these and was impressed by how easy it was to ride and how well it went. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUZUKI-SV650X-SV-650-X-NAKED-BIKE-12-MONTH-MOT-2002-02/293497613537?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 sv650
  3. My mod 2 test was supposed to be on the 20th of March, I had hoped to be passed and out riding by now, but NO! Currently contenting myself by looking at bikes on Ebay that I cant ride. And my 125 is in a relatives garage 20 miles away with no MOT. Grr. Ebay browsing is doubly shit because even if I do find something I want (but cant ride) I have nowhere to store it because my house purchase is going nowhere because of Covid. First world problems I guess.
  4. I finally fitted a new resistor to the heater fan in the 406, after 3 months of it only blowing on full power... 20200403_142500 20200403_160726 Only took 10 flippin minutes in the end, really should have done it sooner, I'd forgotten what a novelty it is to have a working fan.
  5. Well this one wouldnt stop at all... stuck on max all the time. Until I unplugged it. I have a resistor for the fan coming in the post, hopefully that will sort it.
  6. I'm quite impressed with this one so far, but then I do have low standards! The paintwork has stood up well because it was garaged from almost new up until I got it and started subjecting it to actual use.
  7. I reckon the 1.9 is adequate at best, performance is ok, mpg is ok, low 40s with my mix of town and B road commute. I may make some small tweaks to the fuelling in the future. Bloody comfy car though, wafts along like nobodys business.
  8. Not updated this in aaages due to me creating vast problems in my personal life, but lets not get into that. When I Ieft things I had the lovely Mazda pictured above. All in all not a bad car that, so I'm pleased to see that OhDearMe still has it and his Mrs is enjoying it. I, however, needed something french and temperamental in my life. Enter my 3rd (?) Peugeot 106. 20190824_104634 20190824_104706 An early facelift 1.1 model. Not a lot to say about this one really. It was cheap because the rad was leaking, so I replaced that. Then the exhaust downpipe snapped the first time I drove it, so I replaced that. I also replaced the brakes and a driveshaft in the pissing rain, such is my commitment to owning shoddy french death traps. 20190827_185906 Now, by all rights, this should have been a decent car, but it kept filling with water when it rained (no sunroof! What?!) and the brakes were piss poor. This was evidenced fully when some livestock escaped in the dead of night and ran at me as I drove home. 20191101_182859 It was pitch dark and the fucker was a dark brown/black colour, poor thing. Felt flippin terrible at that, but there was nothing I could have done. The accident had creased the inner wing and lots of other bits, including the door (!) so I decided reluctantly to send it to the big farm in the sky. I immediately got looking for a replacement and luckily found something close by which fitted the bill. Yep, another Peugeot. I'm doing well at filling my Pre-2000 Peugeot Bingo card now, with my first 406. 20200402_185044 20200402_185034 20200331_132345 1999 Peugeot 406 GLX with the 1.9TD engine. Only done 76k and bought from a bloke who had owned it since it was 1 year old. It came with excellent history, including the chaps notes on what he'd done to it. I'm pleased with this one, just hope nothing runs out in front of me. The heater fan has now broken though, so its already excelled itself.
  9. Nah, no need for that, ta. And yeah, having a second person controlling the stereo might not be a good idea. Glad you got it working again!
  10. Thats good work on the mirror, i thought it was just broken! Didnt realise they were heated either. I've found a remote control for the stereo for this if you want it? Deffo be fully gadget-ed up then!
  11. I trust that is fine steed has propelled you back home without any bother.
  12. Sold to top chap OhDearMe this morning, enjoy!
  13. I picked up my 'new' motor this evening so I could really do with shifting this. Any more roffle takers? Tempted to drop the price a bit, I'd rather not put it on ebay if I can avoid it.
  14. Ah. Apparantly they don't. I now have the only for sale thread on the main board. What a plank.
  15. Ok, may as well start a roffle list! 1. 2. 3. RantingYoof 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Blakey79 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. Maurice Marina 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24.
