there are some on ebay in europe for a reasonable price. prepare to be "shagged by carriage" as they say over in ireland which translates into expensive postage.

here are some.http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tank-Benz...item46003bf2b1

Hi all, just an update on Iva's progress
Here he is with the guru at BIG heaven



there is a balance chain in here somewhere



meet Fred the workshop manager, gee he is a stickler for detail, little slave driver he is

this is how ya do it Doc the guru doing what he does best



it was at this stage of reassembly that we found what could have been a nightmare one tensioner bolt was stripped out due to bolt being to short, blah blah blah, the other was not much better, so quiet some work later it was up to scratch some really colour full words, some of which even Robbie had not heard before did come out through the process
an here's the guru giving the thumbs up for reassembly



so all ends well with Iva having far less rattle

Oh dear, maybe I worded my comment slighty incorrectly; I was suggesting that some blokes wouldn`t mind owning one.
