Even today it makes me astonished and drops my jaw looking at the technology used then still out rules today's complicated technology, for example the engine mechanism which were real simple and easy to work upon, quality parts delivering high endurance, and not to mention the design each bike according to me is a metal marvel.

There were various technological moves took place till now in regards to the suspension setup.

Rear:

1. Rigid (no springs at all, rigid frame like as in bicycles)
2. Drum shock absorb (found in Triumph motorcycles of 50's)
3. Plunger shock absorb (my fav) this is a wonderful setup with two different tension springs make the bike ride like a flight. The axle is fixed in between two springs which gives the rider an absolute comfort.

Front:

1. Grider fork (works on single spring mechanism) I love this tech on BSA
2. Telescopic fork (two different springs on each side)

Though the technology evolved to gas shock absorbers today but still when you ride these magnificent bike you will fall in love with their moves. Each bike has a character and talks about itself. I remember my 1954 BSA B31 used to become an aircraft beyond 40mph.
Oh! thats a lot of technical information which is good to know. Earlier the vehicles were engineering marvels but the now-a-days they are business & marketing marvels. No new vehicles can carry on for more than 5 years. Start giving problems after 3 years (mostly). The fully restored vintage/classics look more better than the new showroom cars.

This Seems Reasonable enough for this Car. After seeing the prices quoted for Junked ones these days. Maybe the owner has kept some margin for negotiation too.

Came across this link while looking for something else, there is a Fiat super select for sale though mutilated, there is one Herald MarkII I guess and am sure Stanher would be clarifying that for sure.

I feel this is called a real deal, talking sensible unlike sky rocketing, un reasonable pricing quoted by few owners. Car looks wonderful and immaculate and am sure will get a good home.

Here is a very stylish Lincoln Zephyr - art deco at its best.

Lincoln Zephyr V12 1936 for sale - PreWarCar

Finds its way here as it was bought new in India, so thought I'd share.

Default Jeeps for Sale

Reference the information about the 6 Jeeps available for sale , these came my way , but I do not need a CJ 3B the sale will be directly from the dealer to the person who buys the vehicle.

I can just guide the interested parties to the seller.

Regards
Chauhan

All the best...the price is good and I hope serious jeep fans will benefit from this.

Its hard to come across Jeeps like this with their original petrol engines in these times !
