I'm sure that picture is of my Land Rover's chassis after it went for a rebuild.

Alfasuds looked a bit like that too, as I recall. Left you with a flat-four engine sitting on the street!

Brilliant, they truly were - while they held together! But I wonder how many there are left?? A handful at best I'd guess.

That could have come from my garage floor - twice. Each time it was the first ‘great project’ bought by my two sons. Thankfully it’s been ‘once bitten’ and they’re more selective these days.

Do the engine and frame numbers match and has it had the sludge trap cleaned??

I recognise that bike, and that shiny bit is part of it's history and was how John Lennon/ Harold Wilson/Simon and Garfunkel had it when they owned it way back when.
