The wheels are long gone and replaced with original alloys. Cam belt and clutch replaced. New bushings in front A-arm due, and need to replace ball joints in the near future.

As I wrote in another older thread I replaced the bushings with OEM pattern items off ebay Italy.  All is well. Had to fabricate simple pullers to extract old and fit new bushings.

So this summer the trust HPE has served as a workhorse as well as vacation toy. Doing some construction work on our cottage I re-installed the tow bar the first owner put on it that the previous owner had removed. He considered it unfitting for such a sporting vehicle. Absolute tosh IMHO, the dual personality is one of the great things about it. Fortunateley he had not binned the irreplacable parts, only the electrics. So I pulled trailer of 1973 vintage loaded with cement sacks  Grin

I got lots of positive comments about the combo being used for a real task, no sour grapes whatsoever on the tow bar.

Now the salty season can happen any day so it has gone into hibernation waiting for next spring.
