My Neighbour's Got a Funny Accent - £250 or offers

Recommended Posts

Anyone fancy this?  Fondly known to her as "that horrible thing", my neighbour bought this a few weeks back as a stop-gap car and it's no longer needed.  She is so attached to it that she has mentioned just scrapping it, which I won't allow as I'll step in before that happens.

 

All I know is, MOT until Feb 2019, it's the rorty 1.5 and has about 103,000 miles on it.  Bodywork looks straight but paintwork is tatty and it looks like it would very much enjoy being washed and polished for a change.  I'm not aware of any mechanical issues, it certainly works as she's been using it daily, she has complained of the indicators and wipers being the wrong way around but I would disagree on that point myself.  Your opinion may differ.

 

It's not that small but it is quite far away.  I can try for better photos if there is any requirement, these were grabbed whilst walking past it earlier and do lack a certain something.

I believe she'll want about £250ish for it but if there's enough interest in a roffle at around £3.50 I'll get one started.

 

It's located in Barnstaple, North Devon.  Train station is a 5 minute walk away and I might be able to assist with delivery.

OK, let's see if this has any roffle legs.  Outright sale would still be preferable as it has to go very soon but if this fills up quick enough I'll buy it off her for the roffle total.

Given that your neighbour would have happily scrapped this POS, I'd suggest 50p a ticket and a donation to the train fare of who ever wins of £1.50.

I don't want a ticket even at 50p though, because ........... CBA...........

Sorry, I have no interior shots to share.  As barefoot says though, imagine the greyest thing you ever saw.  It's a lot greyer than that, plus apparently it's a bit grimy.

 

Latest tickets added but I suspect this is a bad time to be trying this, there's a few others on.  I'll see if it picks up in the next couple of days though.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
