Nice car, but thats too much of a asking price.

A genuine Tourer might fetch such price if its fully original. and i'am glad i am restoring one such tourer.

Spitfire do you still have this Sunbeam S-7? I haven't seen a Sunbeam in ages. Where is it in Goa or Bangalore?

Keith in Mumbai is making a replica convertible beetle by using an using an orignal for reference purposes, this is being done in front of my very own eyes and I don't think anyone is trying to hide it! These are facts so should not be taken down or taken out of the thread at the behest of anyone I can prove them! Infact I don't think the owner has gone to any lenght to hide/conceal this he just is proud that he and his restorer are able to make a replicate! They anyway can't conceal it as the RC book will tell all! Regarding its value yes it may be less than even a regular beetle but if done well a novelty to some.

I would though like to get a clarification from anyone or pawan who has information if whether the green tourer being painted and posted elsewhere is indeed a genuine tourer I am still not sure why my post has been pulled down as it is a simple question not intended to start a fight unless someone has something to hide!?

Hey Pawan I am not sure why you get so worked up with Ajay and sometimes me you did decide to ignore so how about a constructive chat so we can end this once and for all and perhaps even shut me and ajay up. If you indeed have a zen carb own up if not shut everyone up buy putting out some pics of your engine bay as even your own gallery does not have pics of the bus engine bay, people do have a right to question as you do to others in equal measure on tbhp same goes for the tourer what say?

Sceptics like us have a right to question and have opinions just like you have your rights and at this rate we are all going to be busy only with each other on this forum instead of engaging everyone

in fact pavan kadam himself had stated in his baywindow restoration thread that he is using a maruti carburretor and had even said that he likes his cars to be daily runners.I also would humbly like to make it clear that I have no personal animosity towards pavan kadam .
It is just that when one makes contradictory statements regarding the same classic car and it gets noticed that comments are made.please take it in a sportive spirit, it benefits the owners the most since it is better that he can take corrective action now ,not at a rally/show/ time of sale etc.
please remember that the distance from Hero to Zero and Zero to Hero
is just one (/)

Thanks in Advance

Yes, in Goa. But in pieces though. Frame, engine and wheels are separate and stored waiting for all the parts to be collected.

Spitfire, How come in pieces and what's missing? Have you had it a long time? What about registration? I didn't know Goa had English bikes. Any story to tell about your machine. I love those 16 size tires they sport. Imagine riding it in the evening to one of the new bridges in North Goa. Wow!!!

A regular beetle is being choped, there is an original car lying with them for reference. And some parts will be imported. For more details you should see Anup.

Harit, Oh my Mitra is doing it for Keith. He mentioned something to me about this a few months ago but I didn't connect it with Keith. I think I will say pass about the dekho now. He will wonder where I got the info from. Cannon just keep it a secret.

It was lying in our grain storehouse for 30+ years. Owned by my grandfather but was handed over to my uncle (dads elder brother). He was not too interested in the bike.

I got it in 2008. Convinced my dad to ask my uncle to give it to us.

Its Post Independence Mumbai registered. Imported in 1947.

Well it was not really in Goa. Under the Portuguese Rule our family had to leave their homes and land due to the atrocities of the Portuguese regime against other religions.

They then settled on the borders of Maharashtra. In a place called Redi.

My grandfather who was a businessman then used to love motorbikes and used to travel to Bombay quite often. He bought a Sunbeam S7 from an Englishman who was a priest. It was brand new when bought and he rode it all the way from Bombay to Redi in 1948, I am not sure of the exact year though. He used it for a few years before he passed away due to an illness.

The bike was then used by my uncle for some years before it started giving a lot of problems. Frustrated with it he left it in the storehouse as no one wanted to buy it. There it stayed for the next 30 odd years. Every year for Ganesh Celebrations when we used to go to our village I used to clean its seat, sit on it and imagine riding it on the roads. That was bliss.

Know what, I just wish I can get rid of this hectic work schedule and do just that. Someday hopefully.

It was/is in matt green colour. And it still is intact in lot of places.Unfortunately no pictures. I will try and get them the next time I go there. Lot of folks have asked for pictures earlier.

Sure thing deutsch I anyway don't know your real name when you said Mitra you meant friend I suppose!? Anyway the guy who is doing it is Anoop if you know him I suppose the rest is obvious, if you don't PM me I will do the needfull. They have completed the entire process of bodywork and have replicated it down to every detail - strenghtening the pan and body, modifying the door, A pillar so if ever anyone strips this car in future will be difficult to tell it is replica but for the RC book

Spitfire, This is great news. Now the only thing better than you going alone to the bridge with your S7 is me riding along on another S7. Now I don't have an S7 but I have some pretty great shaft driven competitors. Is it still mumbai registered? You need to transfer it to your name or your dads name first. This you should do immediately. Because rules change every day. If you need a good RTO agent in mumbai I can put you onto one. Maybe you need to do some little bit of work on the bike now and then. If you need some help just ask. Just open it and give the frame and body parts for painting. Matt green sounds good. And then work on the engine gearbox and rest. Are you able to do a bit of repairing yourself? Yep cleaning the seat and sitting on the bike and imagning youre riding it.... well I would do the same.

You need to join this group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/classicglory/
My friend Mahesh's dad has smuggled out of Goa, VW engines in a raft swimming in the river in the days before liberation. His dad was very daring and took part in the liberation protest. Mahesh has his own workshop in Mumbai just incase you need to do any work on the bike engine or other parts.
