Still can't get into the boot of the Mercedes. Three of us trying today to no avail. No sign of any jump point under any foot well, either. A mate of a mate is a Merc specialist so going to get him out to it this week as he can get it, apparently.

So, in other news after a few days of waiting, this arrived in my possession today. Collection was the complex matter of literally walking 15 yards to get it. Happy to report it eclipses EVERYTHING else purchased in the dire interior stakes thus far.

Ladies and genitalmen, one proudly announces the arrival of 'Desire'.

Keeping the wheel trims as have owned them for years (gave them to the owner of this when he first got it) and the battery will be swapped for a shit one.

Before I forget, a huge thanks to @Jim Bell for roffling it and being the top bloke he always is, and @worldofceri for a top, top job of bringing it here at a very fair price.

Last year, when I took my Scomadi for an MOT I ended up buying a 750/4 chopper. This year, when I took my Scomadi for an MOT I bought that little 50cc scooter (further up) and, erm, another Scomadi...

If I'd had the choice at the time, my 200 would have been 'Atomic orange', it's defo the best colour they came in. This one is a 125 with a few extras (some of which might mysteriously find their way onto the 200) including an aftermarket exhaust, which won't fit the other one. The 'Adidas' decals will come off, but I've got some spare (plain) side panels in this colour in my garage somewhere. All of the TL models (50/125/200) had the same panels, so I suppose I could convert my other one from metallic grey to orange, but CBA.

Fuck me, you've definitely won Autoshite for this month.

I had a go in one of those once, belonged to a lad on Retro Rides.  Superb fun, although it was a bit older than yours and had a (very pleasant) column shift.  The noise they make at full chat is brilliant.

 

Edit:  Front fogs and wood trim?  You decadent capitalist bastard.

That would have been Ed's Wartburg. Great guy, he also had a fantastic bmw 2002.
