cos its literal scrap. cars worth 500 quid when done and needs 700 in repairs. its uneconmic to repair and it has a fanbase as big as a mouses nadger. ad in whatever it needs for MOT plus some Tax and youve sank 1k into a 500 quid turd.

he really should scrap it.

If it does get weighed in, I’d like as many reusable parts as possible that’ll fit a 1989 example removed from it and sent to me. Gratis, ideally.

A friend of my dads bought a mk1 escort estate in the late 70s for £10 as his first car and still has it today,

it’s his daily driver and apparently the only car he’s ever owned, although there is a rumour he has another mk1 escort estate in his garage that he was given years ago as a “spare car”

Sorry this is a bike which came up on my ebay as "you may be interested in this", why would I be interested in buying a bike from Australia?

Anyway the description says

Good condition for age, a few scuffs, had a hairline crack in the frame a couple of years ago. i fixed with expoxy resin and carbon fibre , looks a little shabby but had no issues since, no flex in frame. see photo

So a carbon fibre frame you've "fixed" with some Araldite is "good condition"
