That’s worth a tenner!

Hubby’s brother had this in a shed in their parents’ back garden, and they said they wanted rid.

So, my husband gave his brother a tenner for it as he hadn’t looked at it for 20 years and didn’t want it!

He emptied the tank, filled it with fresh petrol and after a few kicks and bit of time it started.


About six to nine months later, a lot of searching the internet and a new paint job, my husband Gordy restored it to the beauty it is now. It’s a cracker.
