EBAY Gamble

Just took a gamble on, and won, this very badly described auction.
It's very local to me, and I can just pop round with the cash and collect it.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

What do you reckon?
Big gamble, or worth the risk?

Whatever it is it's got to be worth more than 56 if it works.

The very brief description does say GWO, so if it doesn't I'll have a moan.

I'll let you all know how I get on.

Nasher.

So it could be a 2hp 50's motor right up to a 250hp 2009 model. Its like the lottery wondering if your number has come up, or not!

Good gamble. Even if it's a 1970s 2hp and it runs, it's going to be a good buy.


Betcha it's an old aircooled P65.

Well no contact from the seller yet despite me contacting him minutes after winning it.

I'm desperate to know what it is now.

I'm assuming it's going to be sub 10HP, and anywhere between 1965 and 1980. With a better description and a photo I'd have to be very unlucky not to get the 56 back.

Unless it's really old, interesting, and will polish up nicely, then Mrs Nasher will have a new 'Feature' hanging on the wall of the landing

Nasher.
