Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

I like your style matey, nothing quite like keeping a project on the drive!

Inspiration indeed.

I'm painting it under a gazebow when the weathers good it works quite well. wont be moving on its own power for a long time. As i welded up the fuel flaps this fuel tank isnt over the rear wheels like the original was, fully laden abit heavier at 50litres 11 or 12 gallons?

Might be abit tail happy wont know till its done, another thing can you buy flame retardant sticky material?

lol driveway antics, yes the neighbours love me they really do :D i'm just waiting for the environmental health to knock on my door.
