Hello folks,

Just wanted to say hello. I bought a 'stripped and important parts have been sold on' project ie all the important stuff is missing lol

However, I'm trying to buy a complete one for a slightly higher than I'd like price just to see exactly what's missing? Then good old Blue Peter fashion start the healing process. that's the theory any way.

Look forward to adding some of my often insightful yet clueless posts along the way lol

Thanks guys.

I've decided against the original one. So instead I'm heading to Portsmouth from Glasgow (900 mile round trip) on Saturday to pick one up with all the bits. Just needs recommissioning 👍

Currently getting some indicators from Ray as well, so I'm on my way.... almost lol

Hello folks,

Well - returned after my journey. Got my new C5 all in one piece. It basically needs recommissioning of the usual problem - rust on Y frame, tyres, belt, chain, brakes, electrics checks, change terminals etc etc - but it was worth the drive and meeting nice folks. The good thing is my original one I got for very check the Y frame was restored, so I can use that worst care, or simply restore the original.

I'm very pleased with it. Nothing missing - the chap even found the original tool box that want in the advert. So, ordered lots of new bits, and lots more still to get.

Happy days :)

Thanks Karl. It's a good start from where I was with the other one. Really looking forward to it. Also my old work colleague mailed me to say he had got one as well. So atleast I won't be in Glasgow lol
