Default Cheap 75 in Penzance

Found this on Facebook Marketplace

I can probably go look at it if anyone's interested but doesn't fancy the trip or buying unseen.

Looking at the MOT history, these were all "advisories" when it passed the test a year ago. Sadly, it appears that the owner has got to the stage when he cannot look after it, therefore, the sale.

All these points could be tidied up.

I still believe this would be a good buy; I have promised myself not to touch another one yet.
