Re: SJG516H. Sunbeam Stiletto

Yep, unfortunately could not find anrecord on there.
The last owner has had the stiletto for the past 10 years and I presume doesn't have a presence in the club.

Re: KVE627G -Singer Chammy 875cc of pure power!

The seats are believe it or not, from a vw beach buggy, look a bit like cobra classics but not as bulky, classics look too big IMHO. plus light weight fibreglass! :D Win win. also running some serious ice! perfect for playing pink floyd dark side of the moon. :oops: http://i489.photobucket.com/album...

Re: KVE627G - Singer NEW LOOK

rears are avaliable from malc, fronts were from demon tweeks at about £50 ish.

the rally design springs are cheaper was going for those myself but wanted them asap, so went and picked 'em up from demon tweeks same day.
