Hi and apologies to all fellow Bugg'rs who have been trying to get hold of me via e mail or phone, as only a few of you knew that we had some sadness over Christmas due to the death of MY oldest son Richard who had only been living with us for the past year or so. His passing has come as quite a shock to all of us being it was so sudden,and it's left us with quite a lot to sort out however I'm slowly getting over it with great help from the rest of my family. Please allow me time to get back on track as I'm only just starting to deal with the spares side, once again I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have sent their condolences but I have had to be careful as Richard also has a son and daughter and we did not want anything put up on facebook before they knew of their father passing away.
P.S If you reply please keep your messages on here NOT and on facebook. Thank You from Dave, Dawn,Azzy,Becky,Tommy
To Dave and Dawn and family I had heard about the sad loss of your son a couple of days ago, and was planning to contact you. It's a terrible thing to lose a child - and we wish you the strength to get through this time. It's good to hear that your family are pulling together and supporting one another. I'm glad you've been brave enough to tell people directly in your post, as I know that people expect you to be there sorting out their spares 24/7, and I hope that they will now understand that you need time to deal with your grief, and with all the arrangements that have to be made, which are worse than ever if somebody passes suddenly. With love and best wishes from me & Patrick. xx
To anybody who is needing spares QUICKLY at the moment....... Please get in touch with me, or Ron, or any other member of the Club whose contact details you will find in the magazine, and we will try to point you in the right direction of the spares that you need from other sources. I have a few boxes of stuff that I am selling on behalf of Sue Webb, whose late husband was a Bug enthusiast, and was building up a stock of spares to restore Bugs in his retirement, which sadly he did not live to enjoy. I'm putting them on Ebay, so as to get a fair price for them. If you contact me and I have anything here that you need, then I will get it put on Ebay as soon as I can..... if that is any help to you.

bondbug750: CBF819H was chassis no. 1 - the first production Bug ...famous (infamous) for its use in the so called Carnaby Street Lord John advertisement - I guess what you've got is the 2nd production Bug!

Little-John: I watched Mike and Eddd. restore a Bond Bug on "Wheeler Dealers." At the Woburn 40th birthday party there were two very professional looking 4 wheel Bond Bugs (one yellow, one green.) Were they factory versions? How were they done? By whom?

mybug: Anyone know the whereabouts of PTO 365M? It was mine back in the early 80s and some pix have surfaced here (apparently from ebay around 5 years ago) so is it still around?

karl: Andrea, just seen your post. if you're still looking try putting it in the for sale wants thread.
Jan 14, 2019 19:58:09 GMT
mybug: Searched and spooled through every image/video/old ad I can find on the internet, I'm thinking that PTO 365M is not around any more. May be resting in a shed, but given the small and tight-knit Bug community, I'd have thought that someone would know it.
