Hi chaps, i'm building a Hood project which will be replacing my current 2B which i have owned and maintained for the last two years and upgraded along the way, so i think the time has come to sell the 2B to make way for the new one.
In the last two years she has been a joy to own and given me so much pleasure, it will be a sore loss when she goes, but hopefully the new one i am building will fill that gap.
The engine is a 1.6 Pinto, which doesn't burn any oil, and is mechanically perfect, so oil leaks or noises, compression is perfect across all four, this is mated to the usual 5 speed type 9.
Last year i carried out a bike carb conversion, using carbs from a ZX10 and it was one of the best mods i've ever done, she starts and runs perfectly, idles perfectly and pulls well through the rev range, i am a vehicle technician by trade so did all of the work myself, rejetted/balanced etc.
The entire braking system has been overhauled, new drums/shoes/cylinders on the rear, new discs/pads and brand new Sierra 2.8 calipers on the front.
Last year i fitted freshly refurbed split rim 5 spoke wheels which were on a Dax Rush with brand new tyres, which have done less than 1000 miles since fitting.
I carried out a walnut dash conversion recently which really sets her off instead of the leather covered steel one before and added a useable glovebox. The pics of the dash were taken during construction and have since been finished off, all Period Smiths gauges fitted and working which include Oil pressure/volts/fuel gauge/water temp/Vacuum and Amps. The speedo and tacho are new modern units with a period style.
She has about 9 months MOT and flew through this year with perfect emissions too.
I'm looking for £4500, which i feel is a good price for such a well sorted and looked after 2B, she's a stunner in my opinion and a real joy to own.
