Hello from Leicestershire!

  1. Hello all,

    We picked up our lovely green 74 bay last night!!

    Drive home was going great until I put it into reverse at the fuel station and the complete lever/linkage mechanism came loose leaving us with no forward gears!

    The recovery truck saved us on the fuel I guess!

    Hope it’s not going to be like this every time it’s taken out!! Still excited for the future!

    Thanks Sean & Alex

  9. Hi from West Lancashire - at least the gear stick is easily put back on with two bolts that are prone to slackening off I am told . I made sure I tightened Mine up well when I plucked up the courage to put a new gear lever on
  10. All part of the bay journey welcome aboard
  11. Welcome:cool:
  12. Hey! Yes I fear that’s exactly what happened, we were foolishly 90m from home with not even an adjustable spanner! Bought an empi shifter for it already so should be nicer moving forwards!
