This one is always good for a chuckle - https://www.ebay.com/itm/MG-MIDGET-SPRI ... xyTkJSQLoZ

It was listed around the time I got the racecar at the end of 2013 and has been on there since. In that same time period I tried selling two 2" main 1098s. I only wanted $100 for each and both ran - ended up giving one away and scrapped the other.

I doubt a 10CG engine like that is very sought after. The later 10CC engines with the 2inch main bearings are a worthwhile base though. My daughter had one in her Morris Minor and it was a great little engine. They tend to be overshadowed by the 1275 of course and, as you say, often don't fetch much money ;)

It's almost like they just screwed the bonnet badge, number and chassis plates to an 80s or 90s Mini ;)

And it has an “RC30 exhaust “ quite an achievement, isn’t that the Honda Superbike ?

£2600 for an utterly f*ck*d 850 shell.

"I know it needs work and it is a challenge but this is such an important piece of British motoring history and must be saved" Haha, YEAH M8. :lol:
