A Sinclair C5 of my very own










I won one of these on eBay yesterday. Need to arrange to pick it up, but here are the seller's pics.

hi just intrested if you,ve taken the c5 out for a spin yet. word of advice, make sure that gearbox has been greased first. otherwise its 180 pounds for another. have fun...
 
Thanks for the warning, Alfie.

Fortunately, I'd read up on things to watch out for so one of the first things I did was grease the gearbox (which looked OK, actually). The main thing I needed was a new chain as it slipped every time I started to pull away!

If you do a search for "C5" on this blog, you'll see a list of the other upgrades I've made as well!
