Long time since I saw this and the reference to it having been restored by Donald Doughty was a trip down memory lane. Donald Doughty was instrumental in setting up the Clubs' Association. The Archive still contains some memorabilia of his, notable his gold fountain pen, which is a particular favourite of mine...

  Indicators on AD Tourer
Posted by: Derek Sheldon - 04-09-2017, 03:40 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - No Replies

i purchased some orange rear light look alikes at   Beauliue at the weekend which I am quite happy with. But what to do on the front. The present thought is to use the two colour L.E.D  jobs in the head lamp mounted sidelight. I don't want to add unauthentic looking units to the front as I don't think it looks right. Would appreciate your thoughts

Can anybody identify my cutout. I don't want to remove it to look underneath it if I can help it.

It's being used with a C35M dynamo and a SM5 switch. I get minimal amps when running.

I have almost got a 1932 AG tourer with an interesting history. It went from Hong Kong to California in 1971/72. It has what I think is a Hong Kong Tax Disc that ran out 31.10 70, and a registration number AP 9057. it's colour was blue/black. (now yellow/black) There are some Chinese characters on the white & Black disc as well.
As yet I don't have the Chassis etc numbers confirmed, so cannot identify the car 100%, but it is a short chassis steel body "Chummy " style
Any one got any information? Even abut HK registration numbers

  Beaulieu 2017
Posted by: Phil Kingdom - 04-09-2017, 10:18 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (9)

Included in the junk, oh, sorry rare desirable items at bargain prices we took to Beaulieu this year was some Ruby window glass, a full set minus one of the door glasses that we could not find, it sat at the front of the stall and attracted no interest what so ever. Having had a good Saturday for both buying and selling and with the weather looking bad for Sunday we decided to pack up early and move the van of the show ground before 8 o clock and have a wander around till about 10.30 then go home, not wanting to bring the glass home we gave it away, it was at this point we realised the other door glass was missing, yes it had been stolen from the stall! No great loss to us as we did not want it but there was no way we were going to bin it when it could help someone out. Well Mr or Mrs thief had you made the effort to enquire about the glass we could of probably persuaded you to take the lot for free.

  Cambridge Special - Wing Brackets
Posted by: Matt_Harnden - 04-09-2017, 07:49 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (5)


I'm looking for someone to help me by making a couple of new front wing mounting brackets for my Special.

These are the brackets that mount the wings and lamps to the body/radiator cowl.

Any recommendations?
