A car to play with- swap for electric bicycle?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for something to tinker with over the next few months, but due to having been paid crappy wages for a while and only just starting a new job (yay!), I don't have much money.


So, I have had the brilliant idea of either selling or swapping my electric bike (as I don't really need the electrical assist).


The Car:

Must be - Older than 1992 and running - MOT if poss.

Would like - Small, Japanese with more than 3 seats.

So I'll probably end up with a broken 1994 Volvo.  :-D



The Bike:

As per picture below, but does not have the rear pannier anymore as this was used to repair another bike. 

Battery is only a few months old and has probably had less than 15 charges. (Lifetime is apparently 900)


36v, 3 motor speeds. Folding Bike. Will do around 15mph on the flat. Range is about 15-20 miles depending on how much assist / how many hills / how many pies.




Similar bikes, used but manufacturer refurbished, go for 4-500 quid, but I'll say value of 2-300 for swaps. (I'll probably advertise it at £275 and accept offers)

This,  Citreom AX -  ex of a few shiters which  - presently awaiting a few bits for MOT, there are 2 new shocks to be fitted and a driveshaft when I manage to get the correct one  Howevers  the two things on the front which look a little like spot lamp covers are the mounts for the special towing "A"  frame which is also included thus it becomes an under 750kg unbraked trailer ideal for towing behind your motorhome.   Currently sitting on someone's driveway with a promise to have it moved before they get back from holiday which obviously will be a missed deadline so ....








  • Emissions not tested due to exhaust ( (d))
  • Exhaust has a major leak of exhaust gases rear (6.1.2 (a))
  • Drive shaft joint constant velocity boot split or insecure, no longer prevents the ingress of dirt offside front outer (6.1.7 (g) (ii))
  • Shock absorbers has a serious fluid leak offside front (5.3.2 ( B))
  • Service brake efficiency below requirements (1.2.2 (a) (i))

      OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?
      1.4 petrol appeals with cheap tax/insurance/ulez friendly.
      I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...

      First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
      Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:

      There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.
      BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
      Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

      Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
      They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
      I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
      The Items are industrial lights, 
      The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
      The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
      If your able to help please pm me.
