Well For the Moment Some are going to be used for storage . The plan is to start on the 1968 one shortly and a Full restoration .
This one unfortunately does not have the original bodyshell so i need to find another chassis and body for both parts.
This is the 1968 one however i don't think the body is original either as it should have had metal framed body with aluminium panels However I'm quite happy with how it looks . So a full Build thread will be coming Soon
Looks interesting . its registered as 51exu stanley but I'm not sure if the body is originally from that chassis . Looks a good project . I have just Bought Cyu 78c which now goes with my other cyu76c in the pics above So this time its not for me.
Just allowed to be pulled along by an operator, or could you in theory change a few things and ride inside?
I think they're classed as a "Pedestrian Controlled Vehicle". You have to walk in front of them, and maximum speed is a brisk walk (4mph). If you let go of the tiller they stop. It's not impossible for the determinedly inept to run themselves over, which I think was largely responsible for their demise.
My worst worry about dying is my wife selling my stuff for what I told her it cost...
So The latest update on the newly acquired CYU78C . Today we decided to Get it moving ready to bring it home . The rear RH wheel was stuck solid and had corroded excessively on that side compared to the LH side which is pretty solid.
So we set to work . First job was to get the wheel off Not to much trouble despite the wheel nuts rusting to obscure shapes . The wheel itself was surprisingly heavier than a typical car wheel and Tyre.
Next Big issue of the day was getting the drum off . The shoes was just locked on and would not free off plenty of spraying and levering it finally gave in
So now all wheels are turning freely . Next update will be the journey home !
