That's what I thought!

Answered an ad for what I thought was one strut. Jokingly asked him if he had another one. "The ad was for a pair."

You've got two of them...?

"I've got four."

Got a call a couple of days later: "I've found a couple of rear ones as well if you're interested."

"Oh, and another pair of fronts...."

Didn't actually believe any of this was going to materialise 'til I met his mate in a carpark 30km away (seller was 350km away but his mate has family near here) yesterday evening. Handed over a laughably reasonable amount of euros (but still twice what he was actually asking - I'd have felt like I'd stolen them from him if I'd paid the asking price). Still keep going out to the barn to check they're not imaginary!

I would put them on ebay and see how they do, not wishing to piss on your campfire but you can get refurbished ones from pleides for sensible money before you go about selling a kidney...
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

I'm keeping most of them! A pair each for the two TZDs. Might let the last pair go, don't know yet - I've got plenty of spare used ones. Last time I spoke to Pleiades they wanted about £140 apiece (can't remember if with or wthout VAT) to recon s/h ones and wouldn't sell me the seals to rebuild my own.

wow - great find -

I think over time more and more BX bits that are hard to find will be remade, as Chevronics are doing, so I'm not too worried about being able to run our cars in the future but it's a good idea to stock parts while they pop up on eBay, etc.. There still seem to be lots of useful bits advertised on eBay but mislabelled or misspelt that with a few minutes checking part numbers often confirm their use on a BX.

I've broken a couple of BXs and I always pick up useful-looking bits when I see them. I'm fortunate that I've got a bloody great barn (and another smaller one!) so space to store parts isn't a problem. Well, in theory anyway - in practice I always seem to run out of shelves and boxes and floor space!

I bought a brand new one a couple of years ago, came with the strut return pipe & clip (alone they now cost about £20) for £100, which i didn't think was too bad, baring in mind a re-con one for £140.... a very nice find :) If you find anymore & run out of storage, don't forget to share them ;)
