    Unfortunately I am going to have to sell my lovely Monaco Blue 172. I am gutted to have to let this go.
    MOT July 2019. The advisory for the sill is just a bent jacking point. I have protected it now.
    92000 miles
    Belts, dephaser, aux belt and tensioner done in October 2017 together with a head rebuild including 16 new valves at MVR with receipts.
    New clutch March 2017 with receipt.
    New back discs, pads, calipers, carriers and handbrake cables July 2018
    Coilovers (brand unknown)
    Ktec KTM 182 look exhaust
    Bodywork is decent, scratch on the bonnet and a small ding in the rear quarter
    Interior is in excellent condition.
    Wheels are ok condition, not the best though.
    Goes brilliantly, pulls hard and no crunches from the gearbox.
    Located in Bonnybridge, Central Scotland.
    Happy to chat about it but please, only contact me if you are genuinely interested, have the cash and are in a position to buy.

    Three shit cars, three flat batteries. Two took good ones up, jumped the Puma then ran them round the small holding for a short burst. The ST was running like a bastard, it needs fresh fuel really then a bloody good pasting up/down the road. Puma battery was some wheezy little Ford one, gone in the scrap pile as it's not holding charge anymore. That and the black Focus ran well today though. Anyhow, getting ready for a move this week hopefully

    Good job I went down their as something weird had happened to my lockup door and it was sitting half open. No one stole the car or the collection of old kitchen tiles or even the dead car battery sitting next to it.

    its a V6, although this one is the 160 rather than 190. Short MOT, but going by the test history and the fact its only done 1k since the last one it should be ok. Going to purge my red one of some bits and stick it on ebay as spears or reapers as its too good just to weigh in.

    Anything pre-65 will attract 'Pre-65 competition' tax. Anything 1965 or newer will generally be a fair bit cheaper.

    Some further inspiration:
    Don't take it on board that all Chinese bikes are simply shit that will dissolve after a few short years. Most of the third world are pottering around on them in places that don't even have roads.
    My two Chinese tiddlers have been totally reliable, so far, but you'll still hear people say "don't touch a Chinese bike"

    For an old school scrambler bike you could easily start off with something along the lines of a cheap Chinese single and just cut it down and add mudguards that you like the look of?

    Trials Tiger Cub, in the video above, pre65 allegedly although almost certainly with 99% modern engineering and materials to remain competitive.
    An early 70s twinshock trials bike would be a better thig for what you suggest using it for and a damn sight cheaper.
    The closest thing to the Tiger Cub would be a Honda TL125. Make sure it's got the original engine/ gear ratios - otherwise to make 1st and 2nd useable in a trials section you will be flat out in 5th at 30mph the original gearbox has a big jump between 3rd and 4th, 5th to give a reasonable road speed
