Good swop

Want to sell something? Here's the place to list it for free! (DIRECT SALES / SWAPS) No ebay links please.
Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

Good swop

Post by Peter Laidler »

Would like to exchange a brand new Briggs and Stratton 850Watt, 2HP 2 stroke portable (but it weighs in at 45 lbs!) AC/DC free standing 'Classic, series 9000 (or 10000 ?) generator. As I said, brand new with new handbook and other odds and sods. Not needed now and it's taking up space.

Too good to give away so offering it to a Forumer living nearby who could collect in a reasonable time frame.

The price; a measly, almost give-away exchange of a very good/perfect small 'S' hub cap and a reasonably but undamaged pair of Mk2 hub steering arms.

Cant get any fairer than that can I? Interested, Peter. Abingdon Oxfordshire 01865 391627

I would do that in a heartbeat as I have a cap and some steering arms...but I am in the US. We just had a windstorm and was without power for 4 days in 32 degrees. Good luck with the swap.

Thanks for the interest chaps. Gone to a good caring home locally by a fellow forumer who'll get some use out of it.

Help needed........ In late Jan I offered a virtually new and unused Briggs and Stratton generator on the for sale page. Deal done with 'NICK' from nearby over a coffee at one of the local M40 service areas.

Nick....... I forgot to hand over the brand new user handbook. Contact me and I'll put it in the post. PLUS this bluddy Cops and Robbers book that I can't get rid of! Regards and thanks. Pete the Pom

PM'd you Peter. Thanks once again for the generator and offer to post the manual.
I'll buy you a pint in a pub by the Thames when we're permitted!
I'm not sure I should be depriving someone else of Ant's finest, maybe hang on to it until we have a pint.

Thanks all, user handbook on its way. Sadly Nick, the handbook only comes attached to Ants tome about cop cars. I did try to read it, honest but having put it down at page 3, I realised that I had to unload the dosh wisher. Anyway, having owned one ex cop car and a couple of flogged to death Norton Commandos, I need a book about them like I need leprosy! And mines a cold Becks next time. Regards, Pete the Pom
