COLLECTION OF GRILLE PANELS FROM BRAINTREE

Is there anyone living near Braintree who could pick up an MM and a later grille panel for the Club Spares and either bring to Kelmarsh or store until I can get down to Essex to pick them up ?
Please pm me or phone 07831 574495
Thanks

ebay scam -they are at it again as user lightbase100

Watch out there is a scammer on ebay using various genuine seller ids. As soon as ebay pulls their listings they relist with another seller id. They are listing several Minors

Re: Series MM highlight carb problems?

Your spare carb looks as if it has the bracket and brass lever as used on the Series 2 version of the H1 carb.
