I'm about as jealous as a jealous thing that's been painted green, well done.

Well done for rescuing them. Hopefully you will be able to turn any cash raised into a bike that fits you!

Just some pictures to enjoy.

My Alfa may find a new home later today, I am sure the Benotto will follow soon - offers accepted.

The bike is still available - I've been too busy to list it properly- however the Alfa is off to a new home on Saturday.

Wish I was closer. The carriage will kill any idea of purchase . What a lovely project bike .
There must be retro interest in Aus. Theres WA Historic cycle club and lots of face book listings for retro bike stuff in Sydney.
Nice Alfa by the way and what's the background. Old Austin , Humber ?

Cheers

W

I think international eBay is the way forward - it probably wouldn't be much less expensive to ship to WA from here - thats like shipping from London to the South of Spain.

The car is a late 1940, early 50's Ford Prefect - sunbaked to perfection, it will become a colourful flower display piece and chicken coop. I found a fellow Brit for the Alfa, I'm not sure the Aussies get European cars - it needs 2 more cylinders and be able to carry a goat in the back.

I'll look into shipping costs to UK, Italy and east and west coast America and post those up.

:lol: my brother emigrated 20 yrs ago and dropped into a "Convo" (seems impossible to Antipodeans to form whole words) that he finally circummed to Auzzie car etiquette and purchased a "Combi Ute" :facepalm:



nice save by the way

Goat? You're not from around here, should be a sheep :lol: I gather you're in NSW from the photo of the Alfa? Which area if I may ask? There are collectors in Australia who I expect would have decent interest in the Benotto. Cheers.
