Ebay Description:

This is a GREAT Buggy and we will miss her, but it is time to find 'Penelope' a new home...

I kept a stock of new parts because they took to long to get. I've installed them all, but a few, and anything left over goes with the buggy
Original metallic flake finish recently restored with gelcoat.

Street Legal Manx Buggy. Lots of work went into ensuring the essentials work great. We needed a reliable, strong, fun buggy that would go to work if needed. From the wipers to the emergency brake, from the headlight brights to the trailer lights. Turn signals too, it's all good.
