I've had a ball and I've learned so much restoring the bug-eye over the past
1+ year.  This group has been an invaluable source of information.  But it is
time to sell it and move on to the next project.  My preference is to find a
local buyer, as I'd like to keep in touch with my "baby".  But, as I don't
exactly live in a hotbed of LBC activity, that may be wishful thinking.  So,
if anybody out there is interested in a pretty BRG bug-eye, let me know.  It
has a 1275 engine, Rivergate 5-speed conversion, and Minilite style wheels and
wider tires - otherwise it looks stock and runs great.  I'm sure Derf would be
glad to come by and test drive it for you (he lives an hour away and passes by
on business frequently).  Everything works except the heater (it doesn't have
one - I live in south Louisiana) and the temperature gauge (which I'll try to
fix).  And I need to install the new pinion seal.  Otherwise, it is ready to
enjoy.  This isn't a fire sale - I'll keep it before I let it go for less than
I have into it.  But any reasonable offer should cover my expenses.  Photos
and a full history of the restoration are available.
