..another batch
« on: 10, February, 2012 - 10:12:20 »
Just returned from another trip to Rotterdam , this haul includes six c5's . 3 of them have every accessory (mast,mirrors,side panels,indicators,seat cushion,horn). 1 has a 3-speed sturmey archer conversion plus I have about half a dozen of the grey c5 waterproof coats and some side panels. 2 of the c5's have a 12v throttle conversion and also the dutch c5 club rear wheel bearing conversion so a very interesting batch of c5's.

Bit of a challenging trip though, driving through temperatures of -6 with sleet and snow but thankfully no drama.

Pleased to be home and chuffed to bits with this stash of goodies  8)

Piccies to follow later...

Welcome back!
Sounds like a great haul.Is the gear conversion an improvement would you say? I had a bike with a Stanley Archer 3 speed I bought from a jumble sale as a kid but it never really worked and I didn't know how to fix.

How much for a mast? It might make my GF happy!  ;)

I've had a few emails asking about what I'll be selling and how much for etc

To be honest I dont really know exactly what I've got so I'll take a good look over the wekend and advertise any surplus or duplicate stuff  :)

They all need a little TLC but no major overhaul.

I'll take some piccies of the axle conversions later , plus some of the other mods.
