The water cooled machine is powered by the Austin Seven engine. There is a mint example in the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham UK.

Got one of those Bruffs in my garage, never liked the look of it to be honest. One things for sure the bloke who owned it (Laurence, I think his name was) wont be back for it, it's been there for years now and when he left it, it had a walking stick attached to the front forks, and a penny in the petrol cap. I presume he stopped riding it due to infirmity and a weak bladder.
Might take it to the tip this year if I can be bothered.

The only time I have to lock things up is 6 weeks at Christmas and 2 at Easter when the tourists are here. The rest of the time I usually leave the keys in the ute. Only once a few $ were taken from the dash by kids.
I love living in the country.

My boy had his BMX bike nicked from our drive. It was a pretty good bike but we couldn't get too upset because the bike came to us after a mate had pulled it out of the river!
