Hi,

Just a quick intro, I am the proud owner of a Reliant SE5a. 1975 model. This one used to belong to Roy McBride many years ago.
A bit knackered when I bought it, but after new engine, respray and some more... it's looking like new again.
Not too many Reliants on the road here. So happy to hear from anyone in this country.
I am in the Eastern Cape in Port Elizabeth.

Cheers,
Roger

Hello,

Thank you for the compliments! It's been a hard slog. It has not been a cheap exercise but i am pleased with results.
The full SS exhaust develops a massive from 3500 rpm which beats my Stag and Interceptor noise for pure kicks when behind the wheel...

Cheers,
Roger
