    Default CitroŽn Coffee Van - Melbs

    Does anyone know where I can source a CitroŽn coffee van (preferably H Van) for an Australasian cycle race to be held Sunday 20 April, South Melbourne? If they want to venture further, there's also a road race at Kyneton Tues 22 April.

    There was a H Van at '13 French Car Fest but it appeared incomplete.

    I'll shout you one in return!

    There was an H van parked outside the New Britain hotel on Church St in Richmond for a while. It seemed to have some connection to the pub. You could call and ask them...

    Michael there was an HY van at the COCOA concours in Bundoora Park in 2011...
    It has the serving opening on the right hand side.

    Hopefully the following link will work.. Cab 55 might be a stronger lead?

    J'aime la vie - along with DaicosMullets that is a great lead. V. cute van. The landscape has changed a touch since my original post. The criterium has been transferred from Sth Melbs to Campbellfield (behind the Ford factory). The road race is still in Kyneton. Too far to go for a coffee van? Will check 'em out.

    I still have your door ready for return. Tucked neatly in the shed (minus a glass). Your question re 12.7.14 Broadford bike race - gone quiet, maybe volunteers need to be Cycling Australia licenced!! Will keep you informed.

    Does anyone know if this H van is up and running as a coffee dispenser and if the owner is contactable?

    thanks robmac.

    Bit of a der moment, I didn't make the connection. MoVida serve tapas in Melbs. Really nice tucker actually.

    Shouldn't they be driving Seats? Will chase up with my other leads

    Default H Van

    Mark is a great bloke and look forward to working with him more in the future.

    What a great result. You've combined emergency services staff, healthy pursuits and classic CitroŽns.

    The ice blue Xantia looks great! 4 cylinder? Manual or auto?
    Some call him Sparkey, others call him "The Break King"

    Cheers John

    So it all worked out. Very cool.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.
