Hi to all members,

I've just joined and I'm looking for an up and running D3 if possible. I'd consider a project build but as a coach builder by trade I might need a bit of guidance (too used to whaking sledge hammers against side raves) when brains are needed not brawn.

Ideally in the south west; Devon, Cornwall, Somerset or Dorset area.

Hope someone can assist.

Thanks in anticipation,

Jeff

1956 D3 running, lights to sort. 7 other bikes in the Barn, 6 runners (when I get time!) and a still in progress Morini 250

Hi Jeff, 

I have a restored D3 which I am currently using that I have been thinking of parting with, I will try to put a photo on here later. I am not in your area, but would be happy to put it in the van and meet you halfway. If you are interested after seeing the Photo get in touch.

Hi Ralph, thanks for the kind offer but even half way would be too far for me at this moment in time.

I'm up against time (and weather) what with Spitfire 1500 engine rebuild at the moment, so I'm looking local otherwise I'm spreading myself too thin.

Thanks anyway,

Jeff

Hi Jeff, 

I have a D1/D3 plunger rolling chassis, complete with wheels, brakes etc,  that you can have as a start to your project.  I can do you a rock bottom price ( £75) and even get it to somewhere in Devon tomorrow if you want it.  I need the space.

Hi Sponge, thanks for the offer but I'm looking for a 90% or finished bike (too many projects already on the go).
