  1. Have you stuffed the trunk with Mobylettes and Velosolexes yet?
  2. I have one of those, works OK but the inlet pressure goes up and down so needles "vibrate" between two readings and the little plastic valve is adjusted to try and get needle to vibrate less so bit of fiddling to get 4 cylinders vibrating in a similar fashion then adjust the carb balance. Worked well on 3cyl Excelisor 492 two stroke engines.
  3. Sounds like you're in a Village People Tribute Band Dog Walking Club.
  4. Not close - no cohiba. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casal Don't look at this listing. https://www.olx.pt/carros-motos-e-barcos/motociclos-scooters/casal/?search[order]=filter_float_price%3Aasc
  5. Is it clutch engaged all the time or clutch un-engaged all the time? If engaged then clutch cable. Check the top of clutch pedal with your hand feeling for the cable end which slips over the pedal "hook" - check under bonnet at clutch lever for floppy cable. Usually clutch pedal end snaps off. Mine broke near Lisbon but managed the 1500 miles back to London without a working clutch.
  6. Isn't that from the newly installed DVLA AI which can predict when your vehicle will break down based on vehicle type, age, MOT feed back and vast data base AND where you will be driving at the time?
  7. kein Kommentar except is it someone on here? https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/oct/27/somerset-gimp-villagers-on-their-encounters https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/oct/27/man-accused-somerset-gimp-guilty-deliberately-scaring-motorists
  8. No thanks I've already got one.
  9. I seem to remember that they used different Metric threads then European.
  10. Gave away some bike bits to fellow Autoshiter then prodded wiring on chinese honda then some bloke from house near by popped along. 3 years ago he moved there and had a passing chat and I repaired his hifi amp {see an Wot have you repaired topic} He hasn't used it since repair so asked if i'd want it for nothing. Am now the owner of this most complex bit of Hifi. It has a selection of concert halls acoustics so Crying Out Loud can play Royal Albert Hall or StadtOpera Vienna rather than the 3 Lions pub. Maybe soon for sale as smol flat neighbors not being 10pm Crying Out Loud fans.
  11. Still looking for a category to dump this bloke in. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/oct/07/driver-who-swerved-across-three-lanes-of-m25-on-spare-tyre-disqualified
  12. Maybe a bit esoteric, American drink which if you know a bit of German then scharfes S is written ß so making the yanks drink cans of Pissss
  13. The Autoshiter aka lesapandre Drives a Bosche pumped 106 diesel with a car dolly and fishing rod on the back seat, stops in the road and drops "other half" off randomly near Tescos so they can get a loaf of handmade sourdough from the market stall before visiting the reduced section in the supermarket and filling trolley with veg oil, Drives off, leaving smog screen for commuters to navigate, to help fellow autoshitest "Dave" move his latest un MOTd unTaxed rust bucket from the curb to a rented lockup only to find lockup already has a 205 which "Dave" forgot he had, on wood blocks awaiting new brake calipers and behing the 205 four plastic bins of home brew on the go, tests a few bottles of Chateau Lockup BumBlaster 2022 and slings a few worms trying for the legendary 25Kg carp in the river behind the lockup. "Otherhalf " calls with the all done at Tescos signal so leaves 106 + car dolly + Rustbucket with "Dave" and wanders off with half dozen of the squire's Trout to nearby road where the 309 is parked.
  14. Was looking at these for some obscure reason and maybe they need a new copywriter
  15. Like most people who live elsewhere from their "home nation" and get along with the locals you know what is acceptable and what it totally stupid and just ignore opinions of people who don't live and don't have your experience when they tell you what to do. A bit like wot I have just wrote.
  16. 200 of your finest European pounds. (recupereda = repair/restore) https://www.olx.pt/d/anuncio/casal-2vel-de-mo-barata-recuperada-IDHUr4j.html?reason=ip|cf
  17. Is that so passing peeps can see the spine info from outside rather than having to go in a smoll space and contort their spines to read spines ?
  18. If you can pretend it's online then Spain/Portugal both have Digital Nomad Visas and Portugal has possibility of NHR tax status so low or no income tax for 10 years. As for the middle of nowhere they both have a lot of that but maybe not as much as https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/175890892037?hash=item28f3ea0505:g:j44AAOSwSdVkzOgh&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAA0GTqbvOTSSBau0u95pOgauNTjvIKgwF3HStbTgd2SiG3ubphPOmjZIxFOuCXqs%2BQRE2g5y5Trk3pRRs1nAVn%2B1BT9ZThTb39UEJets13%2FcnLPaxakpTyDIXwLCDr%2FYttroBHKjm5Bv5tvuSLrCjqcsIyVELL9scCILunvCbDJUmiKuIQCGE0cCscpnaHlajUdZt29imjEQxfC%2BeexXOgs%2FV7bQr014VzonHteXGRzWBlg6YSvbzKG6EWoW%2FTOi4OFPS2i%2BtSxWvDyKcUJ8d7skY%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR5626LvOYg
