1/4 size splitty in Fibreglass

Post by shazzy_boy » Wed Apr 30, 2008 11:52 am

I saw some pics of a 1/4 size splitty in fibreglass, and eventually found a website that sold them. Lost my links and now cant find it, does anyone know of these or have any info.

A petrol engined "mini" bus project is on the cards to add to my collection http://www.pedalcar.co.uk , and of course to go with Blearboys bus that I just bought of him.
