Comments: Not sure about chassis number! Purchased in Dunedin NZ in 2009. Re-veneered dash, refurbished instruments, electronic ignition, conversion to negative earth, high torque starter motor all done in last few years. CV driveshafts sourced from ElanTrikBits in Australia - excellent result! New brake hoses, steering driveshaft joint, engine mounts and windscreen reseated on new rubber surround done in June this year. Some chassis repair currently under way. The electronic ignition appears to have killed the old RVI tachometer-will have kit fitted soon to fix this. Still torn between repainting a modern colour and leaving standard paint in place.
