  1. Passat B5 1.9 TDI always in the 50's driven gently 60mpg easy
  2. OHHHHHH just the ticket for me then http://www.thek6project.co.uk
  3. Nice to see a fellow cubist on here, I took the decision form day one to avoid the CVT boxes ones and went for a fully auto 4 speed. As luck would have it came in Autoshite brown. I had heard all sorts of horror stories about the cost of gearboxes (£5k plus new) and or the cost of the super special oil it has to use at about £400 a refill and thought better of it.
  4. HA I found this 12 years ago in a lock up Burton on Trent way, sold it to a lad who sld it on again to a chap in Northern Ireland who "did the conversion" https://www.annteak.com/garages-galore/
  5. Where are you located fella... I like the look of this shite wagon, ideal to move me mopeds... Is it keep fit windows ? what is the interior like as that's where as a owner I would be most of the time (one hopes) and not looking at the geezer touch ups.
  6. why not go practical and funkey, forget euro box and go japanesse box!
  7. Yea noted and saved information last week to one of the sites i manage Mate of Barry, by any chance? https://www.bsaariel3.co.uk/grd-907-n/
  8. I see one everyday>>> and about 3 or 4 others in the shed WP_20180929_13_08_35_Pro by paul.bottomley, on Flickr
  9. Twas eye, had a hand painted automatic I did LEJOG in (5 days of hell!) and a minter I sold that sadly got trashed by having its coils cut within a second of ownership...
  10. All this talk of V8's reminds me of a load of paperwork I found and wrote up to my site, which the man at Vauxpedia screen grabbed and pasted up to his site... Not so much of a "well researched site" as a "cut a paste other peoples work", but as a single point of reference its okay... errors a plenty but then life is borring is we all agreed.
  11. Words are just too much detail https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BSA-500-GOLD-STAR-TONY-HAGON-TWINSHOCK-CCM-CHENEY-BSA-HAGON-YAMAHA/123403259959?hash=item1cbb685037:g:cUkAAOSwLvxbtOnq
  12. Found some-productive time today between breakfast and afternoon kip (I love Saturdays when there is zippo to do) anyway, I had needed to have a look at the trike and fit the new screen. It maybe a bit much Orange I cannot decide? WP_20180929_13_08_35_Pro by paul.bottomley, on Flickr WP_20180929_13_46_28_Pro by paul.bottomley, on Flickr
  13. Ahh Harrogate, I lived there for a while, full of people with a Yorkshire attitude which is ironic and most folks in Harrogate are not from Yorkshire. Full of bloody foreigners from far off places like the Midlands or The Dark place (Lancashire) and in my case Essex! All said and done mind loads of eating holes so if you get bad service move on somewhere else...
  14. As it isn't a vauxhall I doubt they can help? But deffo worth a try to get a number in Italy to ask for its build details. https://www.britishmotormuseums.com/museum.php?mus_id=8
  15. 4607 miles is the final number!!!!one has made the entire journey in a modern shite and as expected by others (not me) everything went as with no dramas other than of my own making. 20 days non stop in a Cube, might needs some time apart now!!! P1000369 by paul.bottomley, on Flickr
