    The guy I bought the SP1 from Dan has got a really rare little bike, and is really into his history of bikes. I could send him a pic of it to see if he knows if you want mate.

    He has a little bike that's about the same size and has restored after finding it in a skip. There are only 20 in the world of the things the jammy git.

    Here's the bike that the guy had restored. It has won a few competitions since he has restored it at classic meets.

    I was at a Vintage show and they had tanks and jeeps with little bikes like these attached. Just a thought to where you can post it for sale. Might get you more cash;)
