    Nice but too expensive, going for some period (new) fixed rear casters and front castors with brakes. Only £18 all in too

    Heres your piece of handy work getting offered up today (made a mounting bracket)

    Trolley done, although I think I need a darker stain...

    All plumbed in, filled with oil.

    Only things left are some p-clips to tidy the hoses, a bleed of the fuel and cooling system

    Hope she runs

    Well done, great result! I "hope she runs". Any chance of a video, once you have it running? Would love to hear the result. (y)

    Look at the photos with all that booze kept in there. With a bit of luck that should help it get started.:beers::rofll:

    Wow! Outstanding work, on project
    Ouch! That wrist looks awful, hope the swelling has went down, what a terrible reward
