Noticed an intresting vehicle lurking in the background of this c5 on ebay - if you scroll through the pictures your see it next to the one that is for sale :

I noticed it when looking at the pictures too, I am interested in the C5, if the price is low. It needs a lot of work, but could be right for the job I have in mind.

Thanks guys, but not wishing to shy away from completely, I am having second thoughts, I'm not worried about buying a non working C5, i.e dont need the motor, control box or wiring etc, but if it came complete they would be great spare's for Charlie'5, but I do want it too look as a standard C5, so with the pod, front wheel shroud, boot and handle bar cover and grips missing I might look for another, as it might not be worth going to Derby to basicly get a damaged body and a frame. I will still keep an eye on it and if it does'nt go up you never know. So don't miss out on my account.
P.S Although if anyone has the missing items kicking around in their shed let me know  ;)

Retro Andy.

I bet that enclosed bike is a real handful in crosswinds, the mini-el feels it so I'd expect that beastie to be properly entertaining  :D

I would'nt want to pay £50.00 for it, although I reckon it could be a little money earner in the summer along Hunstanton prom.
