Has a skeletal bracket with the V strut. A favourite with SD owners.

That is a lot of money for an engine that is seized and has a cracked block! :shock:

Is it better to over think, than not think at all?

Yes, as it is a rare model worth buying cheaply and restoring though?

I always think the D and C is under appreciated. Bayonet brass tank. Early ones may have had JM magneto and the skeletal bracket. 1946/7.

I've been watching that one for months, it was advertised elsewhere.

Bitch of a place to get to otherwise i would have been in it for the bracket and a few other bits and pieces. It's currently sitting at half of what he wants $.

Serial D1855

Ok so after a quick chat with Hugz (thanks again), the owner and another friend I went ahead and bought it predominantly for the skeletal bracket.

To say it not in good shape is a huge understatement. Will assess further when it arrives in Melbourne and decide what to do with it. Restore or salvage parts.

Owner is delivering it to a friend in Adelaide who will then deliver it to me in Melbourne. Freight costs eliminated. If it wasn't for that it would not have been viable.

Regards,
S

Well done, I made an offer but little late and below asking price. Funny how motors move around this Seagull is heading east and I have two 102's heading back here from NSW's, fresh water Murray area.

Thanks John, I've watching this for months. It was advertised on Gumtree previously with an asking price of $180 and only recently advertised on eBay for much less.

As said above, I bought it for the skeletal bracket which I'll fit to my SD. The rest I would like to restore of possible, however if too far gone I'm sure the parts will come in handy. It's early post war so the former is preferred.

I bet the 2 you have headed your way are in much better condition :)

Regards
Spiro

I hope so one looks like a bitza will put up some photos they will be left as is until I catch up on some other projects.
