Nice work kev, not long now till it's finished, this warm weather has helped with the paint to dry.

Kev I've been watching this Villiers just to see what it went for, it's very tidy, maybe yours could be worth this much, now that's a good amount to the open crank fund.

It surprises me how much some people will spend on an engine that's all painted up, not bad about £60 profit for a few days work.

Stu.

Kev what about the price of this genny. affraid

Kev there was someone selling them a while back on ebay, not seen them for a while so they were maybe old stock. Only thing I can think of is try Internal Fire see if they can make them or give you the name of who makes there's. There is someone else but I'm banned from buying from him Laughing Laughing he get's Lister and Villiers transfers made if your stuck I'll find his name for you.

If you have to get a few made I'll take 2 if there not over priced.
