Re: Help please!!!

Noooooo don't easy start it! One they get a sniff they will never start without it again THIS IS GOOD ADVICE - Easystart is addictive. Fix the problem don't mask it.

Re: Other outfits-impressions??

Guess it's less of an impression as another hobby with dressing up... but a bit like WW2 Reenactment people let me use their expensive toys... like this 9F I was firing for the day.

Re: Urgent suggest vehicle owners read this

The proposal looks like the vehicle manufacturers has been handing round the brown envelopes. "Our cars are lasting too long, must make more profit, pay that MEP a bung and get him to make it illegal to use anything but our OEM parts, should bump up the shareholders divvy... etc etc." IMHO eveyone a...

Re: what to do with a old disco?

I think you may struggle putting any vehicle like those on the road as it is totally different shape and not pedestrian friendly if you follow my drift! Anything is possible, you would just have to comply with the construction and use regs for a vehicle of the age of the chassis - basicly it's a ki...

Re: Dienst Brille

For getting glasses reglazed I have had about 6 pairs done by this company..

Fast service and excellent lenses, I get the £30 1.50 Standard Plastic UC/MAR ones fitted, but as you can see, could be as low as £15 for basic plastic.

To me it looks a fine example of mid 50's home tuni...

Re: NSU 251 OSL for sale!

Can you advise what machine the front forks/headlamp/mudguard are off please, they do not look to be correct for a pre '45 NSU 251 OSL as per the parts book.
They look a bit like post war EMW or Jawa maybe... as such your price may be a little rich for a bitsa. :wink:
