We had a grey that smoked like a train but no fire.
Thanks, it's quite tidy for 45. It's a fine line between keeping it original and giving it a three-field restoration.
Yes it has the spacer. That little bit extra gives more room between the gear stick and the seat - makes a hell of a difference. As I understand it, under the 500 metalwork/rust composite is a 148 'super spec', whatever that means.
First match of the year used to be near Farnham on the sand there, polished up the boards for the rest of the season.
My first thought on the mini triple was just because you can, doesn't mean you should. From what I could see both front axles removed, a fabricated pivot installed, and the heavily modified rear linkage was carrying a full size 2 furrow Ransomes plough.
The deeper oi' ploughs, the 'arder she grunts.
