Midgi culto is a small rotavtor made by the same company as Auto Culto, and just to let everybody know I am based in Guildford and I do blast cleaning and painting, as well as welding fabricating and general mechanical work.

Peter,
the one in the above pictures has the correct colours - mainly yellow, with blue on the rotor box and engine. The wheels and handle bars in the picture are wrong. The bars should be yellow, but I'm not sure if the wheels were originally yellow or blue - is there any trace of original paint on the wheels Russ?
