British Seagull forty Plus

This came in today for an inspection and quote to see whats wrong with it?

The main parts are mostly there but the fuel lines and carburator needs parts.

This is around a 2.5hp model and dated 1974 but age is of little concern when a Seagull motor is concerned. The compression is fine and there is a nice blue spark on the NGK spark plug, so a good motor.

In this case I think the motor will be taken in as stock, serviced then part restored and waiting for a new owner.

Looking rather tatty right now but with a decent clean up, bead blasting session and some new paints, this nice motor will look rather nice.

 Our courier service can deliver to most places!

Now in stock and will be for sale soon.

Good news hey!

The Seagull motor is now in parts, bead blasted clean and ready to reassemble, the solid brass tank is clean of all its old paint and will be repainted with spray coats of gloss black Hammerite metal paint. A new British Seagull transfer is is stock, so thats an option too. Gold Hammerite hammer finish paint will be applied to the flywheel for good measure.
