This is my 1965 UK RHD single cab,was found a few years ago in a barn in kent where it had sat for about 23 years,apart from some minor welding its totally original. Original 1500sp engine tho rebuilt as big end went on one of my first trips . Have the original Hoops but no canvas,love using it for work :D

Just thought I'd throw in an ex fire truck - original paint, used in Karden, Germany. Has a sprightly 25k miles on a 1500 sp engine.
