Nov 84 model, running nos seat pad, nos mirrors, horn and very clean motor. This one was restored / or overhauled by Adam Harper. He installed new tyres, new pod, new control box, repainted the chassis and did the bearings etc. Has a blatant mark on the body by the light and on one part of the grey plastic body by your right knee - looks like some sort of heat distortian occured at some point in this C5s life.

This is just a body, its generally in good condition except for a crack in the plastic by the footwell. Its an early serial number so was very much worth saving and will be used in the next year or two on a chassis Im collecting bits for.

Went a 900 mile round trip to Bournemouth to pick this up - cost £350. Was in good original condition - keys, documentation and even the toolkit intact - so its currently mid restoration. Have bought sensible accessories and renewed most of the usual running gear. Have mirrors, mast, indicators, horn etc to fit. Toying with idea of gearing for a charity run - but need bravery to do it.

This is my "boatyard #7" C5. This C5 was one of a pair that were recovered from the roof/attic of a boatyard, there were at least 8 of them and they were used to ferry customers around the yard/site. I had 7 and 8, but sold number 8 a few years ago. I have restored this one for my 6 year old daughter. It runs NOS mirrors, horn and motor.

This one is a running project, its totally standard, no accessories are to be fitted. The C5 has a very worn gearbox/motor, I badly need a replacment gearbox on it so am looking for a good one! Its also missing its side stickers, centre caps. The pod dosent illuminate, red loom or control box issue, im hoping to get time to fix this over Winter. One day and with a fair bit of effort, this C5 will come good once again! Hopefully get a gearbox and potentially buy a spare red loom to use for a test.

#5. Twin battery model. Offered as new in box for only £358. As I'm not a collector and I intended to put the C5 on the road, I had it delivered without box and the original battery (which was leaking) to reduce the delivery cost. It will be put on the road in 2015 after I've fitted the mirrors, indicators, and fitted a six speed hub. I also have the side screens, HI-Vis mast, seat cushion, Tonneau, and weather cheater.
