  1. I've just caught up on this thread since i last replied back in 2018 - it sounds like we are having similar woes lol mine is now about 198000 miles in, and the cracks are beginning to show - the current issue is that the engine seems to lose boost when you give it too much loud pedal... if you drive gently, you can feel it come on boost, but if you try and hammer it, it suddenly goes flat and wont accelerate for shit. i'll have a good look at some point, and report back anything i find in case it helps your cause also, im only averaging 36mpg... so something seems a little amiss there. good luck, Lee
  2. mine would be a nissan patrol (currently terrano) and a passat B1 (currently passat B5.5) pretty dull really lol
  3. I’d be up for that dude, I’m over in shefford ???? the ace is ok, but not what it used to be. I like the super sausage - better breakfast than the ace I think.
  4. ive just done a vote thing. went for new stuff. in all honesty, I haven't been on this forum for as long as many, but I love it here. I love the shite ethos, and the crazy crazy bastards that inhabit this forum - you are all a welcome distraction from my current nightmare work/life balance, and I salute you for that. I have no issue with the way things are currently, but im not particularly enjoying the malcontent of the people that live in my distraction-world, and therefore i'd like it to be fixed please. preferably by hammering a smaller socket over it... I think that made sense? if not, meh. I voted. Lee
  5. just noticed this post! tell me more, I may be interested
  6. Quick pic of the current stable And the best thing about smoll bikes? They fit in smoll spaces!
  7. ive got my bike licence, so that side of life is fine, but I think registering it would be the hardest bit - not sure i'd want to cough up for SVA for something this small
  8. It’s pretty tatty, with damaged plastics and needs a good service. I’m going to have to put in the hours looking for parts for this I think... Anyway, I’ve stripped all the plastics off, and cleaned it up a little. The plan is: Clean to within an inch of its life Repair/replace plastics Sort out rear suspension Get better tyres Finish in time for stoneleigh national kit car show so the mini me can ride it around I’ll update as I go
  9. It is a Morini Franco 50cc automatic powered Tecnomoto bike. Allegedly manufactured in 1978 - its just older than me! It immediately got put to use... 16DF9B7F-9F91-4440-AF62-F3662B3013DB.MOV
  10. So, after a good knees up to celebrate not winning a mini in last nights roffle, I made preparations for today’s collectioning. After an epic 5 mile drive to the sellers house, I was the proud owner of this!
  11. I have done an eBay. It involves a small child, and angry mum, and a very excited me. Awaiting electronic mail from the seller, and then the collection shall commence. Could be today, could be tomorrow. All I know is, I’m in the dog house for a not smoll amount of time. All I will say is that it continues the little, old, and Italian theme of my ape thread. Just hopefully with less melted screwdriver and moar win. To be continued..
  12. come on guys, lets get this paid up so i can actually sleep after saturday night without worrying that I might have to go get a car
  13. paid. time to nervously keep my fingers crossed that i dont win lol
