Please don’t laugh 2…..

So having killed the other one and nearly myself I have taken the agreed value payout and found another … currently having a great time cleaning it up but atm it doesn’t run as fuel isn’t reaching the carb… Simple mechanics which is just about doable for me …
Not everyone’s cup of tea some of you may remember them fondly I hope to keep a little build thread , it’s a 1989 C90 MG ( electric start ) 1604 miles on the clock

As he was advertised

Another little stunner you’ve found there, and I agree, the colour is spot on!

Great example of an absolute icon. Back in the day (early 70's) almost everyone in our bike club had a Cub of various flavours to potter around on, rather than ruin the exhausts on our big bikes with stupid little trips down the shops etc. Some were actually modified to run in the Club Trials every year.

I had 4 or 5 at various times, including a 1964 C102 which had electric start, and a C90 which I rode to West Wales from Harrow to stay with my sister. Unbeknownst to me during a previous owners rebuild a thrust washer had been left out of the gearbox and I lost 2nd and 3rd gears by the time I got to Carmarthen. I rode the last 16 miles in first!

Great days :D
