    If you are going to have all those i think it would also need a Begg 5000 to round off the set.

    Funny I was going to add that in but the internet went down here.

    I love them too. I idly considered whether some sort of EV conversion might be possible if the motor is toast. Idly is as far as it got.

    I was thinking Patina just looks like shit.

    How about the full 70s makeover, lots of yellow and red with chrome. Maybe a T500 Suzi engine hidden in there
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    I agree, "patina" is sprinkling glitter on a turd.
    Just drop the bodywork over a T Max.

    if you're talking about the NZeta i've got a brand spanking new body for one of those, story goes when the factory closed someone took three home and ditched the other two. these can rust like an old car of the time so a nice start to a resto job.

    It might be interesting to get a few sets of fibreglass copies made and slap em on a jap scooter.
    Sell them of to hipster doofuses.

    I think my parents had a toaster when i was growing up that looked like the NZeta.
    Someone on KB used to have one on their avatar a Yellow one i think?

    The motorcycle equivalent of a MG TF kit car body on a Triumph Herald.

    I remember there was a Sprite or midget replica body made for morris 10 or something like that. a guy where i live had one in a shed.
    Pretty sure the original Lotus 7 used a fair bit of Herald stuff, Funny enough my father still has a Triumph Harold.

    maybe, but this is including all the chassis so not sure how well it would fit in glass
