Great story. Items from the 1960s and 70s are in demand these days. I gave away a very early 1970s Mamod donkey engine recently to someone who was almost in tears receiving it and reliving his childhood.

I had the "mobo" on display at the Inverell transport Museum for a few years until we packed up & went "work touring" I was hoping send it away for restoration to a company in Sydney who restore bike fuel tanks before my grandson was too big for it. I'd better get it done or he will have outgrown it.
