I think pmg could be correct originally Berkeley used other pmg lenses . On reflection if not too dear buy a pair as they vary greatly in shade

Same meticulous engineer owner for 50 years, and only 10,500 miles on the clock.

My Bond has the same owner for 51 years and hasn't changed owner .....

But have you got 10,500 on the clock? More like 105,000 plus the multiple of your choice. (I think Bonds tend to go further than Berks, don't they?)

Thanks Richard, I'll have a thorough look through the box of spare this weekend to see if I'll need them.
P.S. That is not my mystery box #2. ::)

Here is a more recent photo of the mini mystery crate that no one has dared a guest at identifying yet.
What EXACTLY is it?

Are Bond wheel spares hard to come by?

I have a pair of 8 inch Bond rims here. No idea why, but they were in with some other odd wheels. The Scootacar one has moved on. Some three point ones also, sadly might have been Flipper etc.

I ought to dig out the bumpers and some other bits I have for Bond. Better used than in my shed.

So to recap. The Berk, if I remember correctly, is a low use triple SE492, and came with a spare engine. But for the nonsense with the freight forwarding company/agent a deal with which your very happy. More to the point it is a purchase of what many recognise as traditional, perhaps iconic, Microcar, as opposed to your predilection for the more modern French Fridges, while they are affordable. Not that this small stature limits your collection and interests. How long before your new building is full?

It is full now.   When I remove a Victorian sofa, and a couple of desks tomorrow, and shuffle  the other vehicles around, I should just barely be able to get the Berkeley and Flipper inside .
However the more rustic, but thankfully not rusty Solyto, will reside in a lean to that I should be able to piece together before the next rain by simply squeezing some 5" thick by 9' long aluminum backed foam panels between the metal barn and block retaining wall that is 5 and a half feet away.

This should do until I get back on track pouring a 20' x 32' slab between my barn's present end wall, and block footing walls that I have already completed.  That will allow room for a dozen fridges.
After that, it will get more expensive, but I am hopeful of creating a mezzanine loft to hold another 10 full size micros (please excuse the oxymoron) that I have laying about the house.
