Saw this in Bristol.   Drove around the block just to have a closer look.
Why did I get rid of that one

Always thought of them as tractors (useful, reliable, practical, but not fast) Obviously he agreed, that's a tractor seat on it!

If it's got tits or wheels, it's hassle, if it's got both, RUN!!!

I wonder how comfortable that seat is or does it need a few handfuls of hay.

they are not as slow as some think.  I had one a few years ago and it was just as fast as my 500/4 with a better top speed.  also had much better brakes and would go round corners with everything scraping.  ugly and top heavy but under rated.

Now that's why I posted it.  I thought the owner put a lot of time, effort and thought into it.  I,  for one, appreciate the result, and that's why I drove round the block, found somewhere to park and bothered to take and post the photos.
