after winning this beagle on ebay me and my partner set off to Romford Essex yesterday morning from broadstairs Kent we arrived in Romford around 1030am we were met with this cream and white beagle very shabby but original and 100% complete she started up OK but the clutch is stuck and the kick start does not return on its own she also needs re registering with dvla but a pack is on its way I'm not sure what my plan is either to restore or just sell on I know there are not many around so I'm gonna think on this if I get a good offer I will sell watch this space

Hope that works for you best of luck.

There was a chap on next Rd from me with a 650 Dnepr been trying for years to get the dam thing running.

Offered many times but he declined i must have asked him over and over if he wanted to sell it.

5 years later knock on door you want to buy bike give us £60 snatched his hands off.

Had to stream clean carbs out were in a right state it must have been parked up for 10 year can,t understand people like that.

Soon sold the «censored» tough hated it o-m-g

From pictures online I've found and what I vaguely remember, it looks more like a Zenith type carb rather than an Amal.

I would have thought an Amal 362 was too old for that application.

 

EDIT:-

Could be an Amal type 32 as per Tiger Cub

That's a real downer ... but you are doing the right thing ... if it is stolen they (Police) will come and take it anyway if you try and register it so best to check ... lets hope it is not and you get to keep it

Best wishes to you and your lady for forth coming birth ** Please log in to view **

I am afraid to say if it is stolen you have no title to it so you are best checking now before you do anything else . How did you pay ? You may have redress through eBay if it is stolen .The problem is that the police can probably do nothing against the seller as eBay hide behind the fact they are based in Luxembourg and will not disclose anything without a fight and without there cooperation there will be no evidence for the police. I have done as number of cases involving them and it is like trying to get blood out of a stone to get a response from them . Sorry to be a downer I hope it turns out ok

Sorry to hear that thats why in original post i said see if there willing to send you frame/engine numbers then contact DVLA.

Make copy.s of any correspondence between you Ebay and seller as evidence.Inform Ebay as well.

Best keeping away from anything with no documents if there not willing to do that even then they can be cloned or faked.

Its right you don,t have any claim to the bike if its stolen how ever it all depends what the original owner has to say.Plus if it was ever a insurance claim then they would be legal owners.Work with Ebay slim chance you could get your funds back.

Hi

 

Just a thought

If it is stolen, and say the subject of an insurance claim, maybe the insurance company

might strike a bargain with you to allow you to keep it.

Of course it depends on what the negotiated bargain price would be and whether you

would want it.
