    You have mail mate----

    As a long term bike rider, yes, most of us have a tumble every now and then,and as you know the old collar bone usually seems to take a beating.
    I had a fall a couple of years ago and busted a shoulder, couple of ribs and my big toe and actually ripped the sole off my shoe, which was still locked onto the bike, At the time I thought that was p...

    Oh no. So sorry to hear that. Family in my thoughts and prayers. George

    I had mine re-cored by a long gone shop some years back. The guy actually had a tattered book that listed the exact correct core. Not easy to find anyone to do it anymore however. The above stressing exact location of all brackets, etc. is crucial. I ended up having to carefully unsolder and move one anyway. Using the shell as a jig is a great idea, but I would sure figure out a way to protect...

    A Morris 10 cluster is identical except it has too many teeth on the drive gear (the front gear which meshes with the first motion shaft. You can machine off that gear and press-on/weld the drive gear from a TD, TF or Y cluster. It has to be done by someone who knows what they are doing. This was a useful tactic when Morris 10s were common in Australia but might not be feasible in the USA. Tho...

    I have a wonderful MKI, 1959 Frogeye sprite. Bodywork completely restored, English wheeled. All steel (no fibreglass) & painted original leaf green. RH drive (not an export). Rear axle restored & fitted (can be moved around like wheelbarrow!).

    Got a huge pile of parts for her, all genuine & original (engines, gearbox, seats, steering wheel, etc).

    Asking 11,000 minimum.



    I have been asked by someone I met recently if I could place an advert forthe sale ofthis frogeye with the club. I really know nothing about this vehicle apart from that it was registered in 1959 and would require some TLC.


    1980 MGB Roadster in Vermillion.
    Very original, never welded with 80,000 miles.
    Lots of history and MoTs dating from the 1980s.
