As you can see he was rebuilding the car to a high standard, as it was intended to be used to do long distance tours, at speed and in comfort.

The car does require more work to complete, which we will gradually do over the next few months, or if you wish to take on the car as is and complete it yourself, please call Mike on 01736 762402 for a chat.
