if you were closer you could have for free a set of good used tyres to stand it on, they are old so not suitable for using on the road,
....That's a very kind offer - are they full profile 185 X 14? ......How old is old.... :w ... :?:

Part worns are around £25-30 by the time you've got them fitted Geoff (the tyres might be cheap but they sting you on the fitting charges)- new ones are £33.99? Oh I see, Phil - will also sound out 'All Car Exhausts' in Leek ...I know Tom who owns it & his son who co-runs it - &, of course, will ch...

Possible temporary thread hijack warning! :D ....Am in temporary possession of a Spartan kitcar (Phil H.may have noticed it on his travels...) I did spot it :D For reference, Geoff, the SS1 uses a 5.5x14 alloy as standard and use 185/60x14 tyres. To get the right size appropriate to the running gea...

GTE Auto in Essex

It was on ebay for some time then the listing ended on 20th Feb. saying 'no longer available'...(Same price, same company) - so whether a sale fell through or not, I don't know....

SE5A driver seat

Worth keeping an eye out on ebay - but, unless extremely lucky, you may find yourself having to get one that needs work - broken frame or damaged mechanism, possibly, but can be fixed......maybe even a tan one (can be re-coloured or re-covered...)

Coupe tow bar

I have a non-original one one my SE5.....it protrudes a long way back from the bumper - Dave Mac. said he wouldn't fancy towing a caravan with it - but that may be just because of the way that it is fitted.
