I am SORRY if I sounded hostile,which I never intended.!
It may be just that I am too crazy about Originality that I may have been a bit blunt in some posts

But you would be surprised at the knowledge of some of the guys here. Once you figure that out you'll come back down to earth. Seriously dont go off on people and sound hostile. Its not some battle of the wits. We know you love the SS80 and have immense knowledge on it. Share it with everyone and enjoy. At the same time treat people here like family and become a part of this board and one amongst us.

err.. dude! just because he is a newbie here it does not imply that he is not aware of classics and all. there is a world of cars outside T-bhp, and he most certainly is not a newbie there!! And, as u may know, everyone is a newbie when one joins this forum, and that doen not mean he is less knowledgible than anyone here!!
lets stick to the topic and SS80s, not charecter sketches!
Cheers

There's a guy in JC road, Blore who has some new old stock of SS80parts. He had the engine mounts and the torque rods when i checked almost an year back. They were genuine SGP items. If you're interested i'll try to get his number for you, you can contact him directly. I dont know if he has the the lights or the trims though.

Btw: I have somewhere stashed a pair of stanley side indicator bulbs, if you need them you can have it. I had one stanley sealed beam with me, it should still be there at car care in tvm.

I remember the time when not even owning, but sitting in one of them was a luxury. I was a kid when I first sat in one of those and traveled in the city. People would look at us like we are the most elite persons in town. It was fun.

That car was a gem - loved riding along all the time!

To see a SUZUKI SS80 DX in concourse condition seems difficult than many vintage models.
