i guess you would be referring to this genuine Peel part . By the way this Richard is in no way connected with the item

The description is so long winded that I at first suspected that the seller was our own concrete biting hound Al himself selling under another ID but then again I thought, I can actually follow this blurb , its not cryptic so It cant be. The vendor fails to mention that the handle was used on quite a few other vehicles too including my dads sidcar!. By the way, I have some air that was once in a genuine Peel tyre, I cant prove it but this makes it worth a whole lot of money! ::) ::)

But is it the original real sea breeze Peel air or some reproduction air that was put in later to keep the pressure up? That said its better than fake air of unknown quality and not enough Nitrogen.

...and if not purchased, who knows, it might yet find it's way onto the other Oxfordshire "Peel", which already has more genuine parts hanging on it with proven provenance than the whole of some "genuine" cars!  ;)

Yes but what about your kingpin angles? I have a theory about them, I suspect they are odd because it was especially set up for circuit racing!

Well im just back from my garage wathing my Peel treasure chest for some parts i dont need not any longer. Fortunately i could offer a genuine Peel Avon tyre. This one was fitted on my Trident. Te original see breeze air i've sold ages ago, and the tyre lost his profile on english roads.
Originality is guaranteed. Maybe i should bring it on auction :-)

Not to they guy that bought it. He is very happy as his Peel is now more original than most of the others. He has a point.
