Hi,, pulley guard came with it altho it did need some repairs,,, as for the exhaust, previous owner put it on bout 20yrs ago, its from a single cylinder motorbike and by god it sounds awesome!!!  Im looking to put a more original one on in its place, i'm only going to be taking it to local shows/rallies,,,,   have original wheel weights with it too, but they still need rubbing down and painting,, 
 
on lookout for another wee project now!!!!!!!

Hi there.
 
I have one of these (steel bonnet one) which i am rebuilding.  There are a couple of things i dont know, like how the handbrake linkage works (nothing there on mine) and what to use for the gaskets around the diff housing and axle.
 
Will post pics soon.
 
Cheers...... Rob

Any photos would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 
 
Ive had to bring it home and am hoping to get it together very soon in case it has to go. Work ive had done includes stripdown to metal and many parts i sprayed with rustoleum, new bronze bushings in the rear axle housing and new brake lining. New tyres fitted. Fitted new fully sealed bearings in gearbox input/output shafts.
 
We did get it running when i first bought it and had some fun driving up and down the road and dragging my Citroen BX along the drive.  It is only recently i have found pictures and stuff from other owners, i havent actually seen another one of these in the flesh.

Yeah it was listed m8,, but my next project proved to be more expensive than first thought so I have reluctantly said no to it and decided to keep a hold of my beloved Uni-horse and mowett  :)))
 
I will forward you some photo's over the next few days of the handbrake setup!!!
