Looking great. Thanks for sharing.
Looks to be in very good nick for €200!!!
Why are you looking for canvas in particular? I thought these always looked better either with Canopy or with the Lid w/ rack

This is Canvas



The Canopy



The Lid w/ rack

Looking great Dave. I see that you still have the original wheel mudguards on. How good is the condition on them.
Perhaps one of these shelf stock would already be on its way to you today Smile



PS: Awesome looking bay too!

Mud guards are in great condition, looking forward to my wheel carrier getting here so she is complete.

Then I get to start my next project...Eriba Puck!!

Absolutely love Eriba Pucks! But getting one over to Pakistan is the biggest challenge unless ones drive one in from abroad. There are no known Eribas in Pakistan as of today! Sad

I have been looking into possibility of replicating the original mudguards for a while but the market is niche beside Mike de Rooy has some to offer though they are not a perfect fit in terms of mounting position (as told by Mike himself). When I was looking into metal replication, Mike was the first one to help with some details but at the same time maintained that the demand was super low for mudguards as not too many being restored these days.  

How do you see it there in Germany? Are there many floating the roads these days? I thought most of them were hunted for cheap and taken to UK for minting moneys?

I have only seen  1 or 2 on the roads, I think people like bigger trailers these days.

I have seen the eriba familia more than the puck on the roads too thinking about it, guess the bigger is better thing is really important to some.

I just like different.
