  1. I'm coming. The first time in how many years! Hope to see you all later
  2. unfortunatey it doesn't have a heater, so I think stopping at lots of services will be the option for using the hand dryers to warm up and coffee to keep awake
  3. Sold the Robin hood - the new owner is driving here back to Scotland this morning

  4. So the car has a new owner, who is currently driving it back up to Scotland. Safe Journey Stephan. If anyone sees him give him a wave
  5. Well its come to that time when I have made the decision to sell my 2B. So here goes: Its a Robin Hood 2B with a 2L Pinto engine with an injection head. It Has ZX9R bike carbs on a Danst Engineering Manifold Type 9 5speed gearbox and sierra rear end. Martin Keenan Custom built Silencer - giving it a sweet noise and put a smile on your face each time you start it It has Full weather gear that fits Has a set of 5 Uniroyal Rain sport 3 tyres that have done around 400 miles since fitted last year ago. There are numerous other spares that will be sold with the kit. These include a Front Geometry kit purchase form GBS for the vehicle but never fitted, A brand new set of GAZ shocks that are still in their boxes. The paint on the body is flaking in a few places, but its superficial, just a rub down, some primer and a respray and it will be as good as new The log book is correct and its registered as a Robin hood 2B Its MOT'd until April 2018. Its covered 16,708miles I'm looking for £3995 I'm located in Crawley - will answer all questions and anyone who wants to view the kit with an eye to buy is welcome Picture of the kit are here:

  9. Dan Can you send a pic mate? Might be interested Si
  10. Hi All Need some help. I'm looking at getting new shocks and springs for the 2B, however, I know they are going to want loads of measurements from me and I have no idea what or how to measure them. Does anyone out there have a comprehensive list of these measurements that I could use so that I can give them to Dampertech, protech etc so I can get correct prices and parts before I order? Its a 2b with wishbones and has original zimmermans on it Thanks Si

Hope this helps others ** Thinks W*nkel is a rude word so removed the a
