« on: 09, March, 2017, 09:34:12 AM »
Hi peeps, its time for me to sell my beloved tiger.
 
It has a 2l pinto engine, 2500 miles on the clock, all work I've had done on it had been done by a time severed mechanic its just flew through the MOT with no problems I will tax it for 6 months if I get any interest. she is kept garaged
 
I looking for £3000 for my smile machine (well that's what I do every time I go out in it ;D) and thought I would offer it to anyone in the club first before widening the search area.

John,

Great looking car mate, I love the colour!  Does it have a tonneau cover or any form of weather gear, I've been using my aprilia engined VStorm through the winter and I've come to the conclusion I'm getting too old and might need something a little more practical...  Also how does it work with insuring Q plates, I've never had any experience of suchlike? 

Thanks Andy F

p.s. Have you got a fire engine fetish going on there!?!

It comes to us all eventually. I'm thinking along the same lines myself. Although Ratbag has a half hood and a heater, I am 'Clickety click' this year and am quite drawn toward more comfort.

I have a Quantum 2+2 as well and the hardtop, proper doors, heated front and rear screens, largish boot and cd changer are quite attractive to me. No where near as quick as Ratbag and doesn't hold the road as well, but still fun. Roof comes off in the summer (both days ;D) and hood is then in use. It locks up and has an alarm, immobiliser and transmission lock.

I was thinking with the Tiger that if it had some form of weather gear it would be a bit kinder to the old bones than open exoskeleton chassis/bodywork (or lack of) on the VStorm! (see photo below, if the weather was always as good as in this picture it wouldn't be a problem.)

I'm trying to become a grownup in stages obviously, I'm not sure I'll be able to ride motorbikes again after a couple of ops. hence the bike engined car as the next nearest thing.  Perhaps a Westfield/Tiger/Caterham style is the next step towards civilisation, although I really like your scenario of having a couple of options at the same time! Very jealous

Yeah, those 'skelly' cars are a bit draughty!

Ratbag has a half hood, made for a wider Caterham SE. I needed to rake the windscreen back and angle the roll-over bar forward a bit. Caterhams are quite small in the cockpit compared with the Locost.
The top is most often up as it makes the ride more comfy even in the dry. I have some side panels in vinyl that goes from the bottom of the roll-over bar to the bottom of the screen which adds even more comfy.

No point in taxing it for 6 months I'm afraid, under the new rules tax does not get passed onto the new owner with the car, it gets refunded to the last owner!

Nice car, I have a Tiger myself.

At least I have side panels on the ASBO Dave! I may even eventually fill in the gaps on the top on the bonnet to prevent cockpit wind!!  ;D

Hi Steve, I don't do tax that way now. I do it online by monthly d/debit. It gets taken at the start of the month and I can stop it by doing a 'sorn'. Payments are auto' stopped. Restart it by taxing it the same way. Cost an extra tenner a year, but worth it I think.

Is that the one at Bleadon hill? Looks nice and comfy, very civilised. I wouldn't be too down on Pinto 2.0, it is quite lively. Beside, that car is a tourer not a racer and a lot of pleasure can be had with that. My criteria included a hard top, otherwise I'd be going to Bleadon too! ;D ;D

Yep that's the one, it does look tidy and like you said no racer but a comfy, warm, dry tourer :)

John,

Cheers for getting back to me.  Roughly whereabouts general area is the car kept, if you don't sell it this week (I'm working away) I wouldn't mind having a look next if that was ok as it might work for me anyway?

Thanks, Andy F
