I thought I recognised the splodge of green paint on the left front - I used to own this vehicle!
Bought it from a club member in North Yorkshire (Drew Edwards) and trailered it back to Colchester behind my RR. On the front it says 'Babe' in yellow marker-paint, a mate of mine on first seeing her said 'she's a babe', and the name stuck! The air-cleaner door came off somewhere on the A1 - didn't bother going back for it!
She still has a RHD tilt, I see; I took the tank off to see if it was any less leaky than the one on Big Blue - but it wasn't. I bought a club one for BB, both the old ones went for scrap when I moved to Mid-Wales. That's when I sold Babe to a chap in South Suffolk, but he has presumably since sold her, as she's now in Westcliff, near Southend.

Amazing to see her again - I hope someone in the Club buys her!
