Also sent an email off to Mopedland enquiring about buying one of the covers that Codger found there, plus some tyres and tubes.

Next I need to find more things to flog on e-bay to fund all the other bits that need doing.............


Gus is priceless! :twisted:


Some things are far too valuable to want to sell :D
