    Not a bad turn out today, considering the heat.

    Peugeots, Citroëns and Renaults.

    Here is a pic of an ex-Railway fitter replacing a welch plug in a Solex:

    What a bright sunny day (Temperature near 40 in the shade, Humidity 99%(At least), I have never felt so bloody hot!

    11 French vehicles today.

    1 x Solex S3800 Moped. (Owner was not able to pedal quickly enough to start it for full demo.)
    1 x Citroen
    2 X Renos
    7 x Pugs (Various see pics).

    We waited for you cam85, till about 2:00pm.


    Who said addo would not turn up?

    A good finish to the year, got to say one of the pictures of BigRR looks like the sort of portraiture you see on the front of an Order of Service...

    Unfortunately I can't make it today, broke my shovel handle late last week and the dealer has to order a new one out of France, then code it in with the computer.

    Have you tried ebay UK, most are low diggage with very little use use other than providing an elbow rest. . . careful that you get a RH and avoid handles from Blackburn Lancashire.

    Shoot me PM with the dimensions and I'll bang up a new one on the lathe.

    But don't throw the broken bit away, they can come in handy at times.
