it was the 'rudimentary clutch and gears' that swung it......

That's what made me plump for a CZ...

working on it  ;)
Does that mean you’re working on the restoration of said Allen scythe, or the prize for John? 🤣👍

Both  :)

here we go, got the old girl working today, needed a new ignition armature and various stuff like throttle cable, silencer, woodruff keys for the wheels, and a lot of s/s nuts/bolts, split pins etc.
huge fun to do, i haven't stuck to the exact original colours, just the closest i could get with hammerite.

oh, and new tyres and tubes, not cheap, but had to be done .... £40 per tube/tyre and a real sod to change.

of course, now it's working, it'll be getting stripped for a tune up, send the barrel away for boring out for larger piston, reporting and polishing. fit HC piston... possibly a carillo rod, then get it re-chipped  ....  ;)
