    ITS HERE AT LAST! THEN BAD NEWS!

    Post  scootermini on Fri Jul 02, 2010 1:37 pm

    At last the rear beam axle has now arrived after 2 months of waiting and endless phone calls.The bad news is after cutting off most of the rear subframe bolts(because the heads had rotted away)i have now found that the heel board needs replacing as does the inner rear wheel arch!Im working on it most evenings and every weekend trying to get it back on the road sooner.Should have wheel arch cut out and new one welded in this weekend.Looking forward to having it back on the road again soon.I saw a red mini on the A272 between midhurst and petworth on thurs which sounded like it was running a bike enginge,just wondered if it belonged to any club member?
