    If you are looking here to try and find your first bus, and are thinking of doing the work yourself. You will spend approaching double this to get your bus in this condition.

    If you already own a bus, you will know how much maintaining and restoring a bus costs and I hope appreciate the work that has gone into this one.

    Please contact Mark at Autotechniks and arrange to see it, give it a look over and take it out for a drive. You will not find a more looked after bus for this sort of money.

    Contact Mark on - 01372 878464

    Or myself (Simon) on here for any questions.

    Looks lovely that
  12. It is a stunning looking bus. If I hadn't spent sooooooo much on mine, I would have to have this one.
    Yes it does sound like a lot of money, but then we all know how much this hobby of ours costs !!
    If anybody is interested give Mark a call on his workshop number, I am sure he is negotiable on the price.
    I can pass on his mobile number if you would like to talk to him in the evening or weekend. Just PM me.
  13. watch out then, Keith our upholsterer got pulled and ticketed on the M1 for black plates on his, As its a 76 or later.

    Just out of interest I thought it was only US spec'd busses that had the side reflectors?
  14. "I broke the front white one parking on my way home ;) its in the storage compartment, I have it here look. Figured Id be better with an unbroken one on the vehicle" :lol:
  15. Not sure on this. Bus was bought from a UK dealer. Don't know if it was an optional extra or has been added at a later point.
    I'll try and find out.
  16. lovely colour, lovely bus. GLWS.
