Its broken of course. At least in that respect it will fit in with the majority of the existing two wheeled fleet. Shouldn't take too much to get running and is of age to be reaistered historic thus cheap investment opportunity. Thats how ill be selling it to her anyway. 

Anyone else treated themselves for Christmas?

I bought myself an early fully loaded manual Golf V5 as a spares car for £500 in an identical colour to my Golf V5.

I’ve found that recently it’s getting really hard to get spares for my early automatic V5, so this was the ideal scenario.

The problem is it’s quite a nice example and only needs a throttle body, so I feel bad using it as a spares car.

Was stalled on the purchase after receiving the news all contractors were canned.......  Recovery truck can wait I suppose - would've used it to pick up the bookmarked 4cv so double save I think. 

 

Ah mate. Good things will come. Sometimes hard to see at the time though I firmly believe every kick in the teeth has out me in a better place in the end. 

I know its a cliche though they are rarely wrong.

This ones a Melody. Deluxe no less. Was the first two wheeled machine i rode. I have a couple of qr 50's with the same engine kicking about. 

Ours is a slightly later stripped Vision. One of the best field bikes we have, shame currently it is a non runner.

I gave missus a wish list.

Seat - because my back - and knees - protest now when on the floor.

Trolley - because the floor and slam panel are not the best for storing parts.

Wing protector ( it's in the bubble wrap ) - used snap on cos all the gear no idea etc...

Wurth brake cleaner bottle - aerosols from halfords work out expensive.

Milwaukee shockwave deep impact sockets - pity I cannot afford any of their cordless stuff.

Digital thermometer from Draper.

Sealey large torx bits ( up to t100).

And a couple of saws.

As you were.....

I only just bought one of those cheap trolleys a few months ago, always told myself I don't need a portable workstation, but it's been a game changer

I can put my tools on it then push it down the drive - since year dot I have been up and down like a bride's nightie getting tools from the garage.
