Hi all,

Look what got listed today at the local traders. From memory it's a Goblin G41?

Haven't seen one of these since 1979 when i dragged one back home that was dumped outside someones house in the quarterly council clean up. Mum quickly ordered me to re-dump it.

It's in very good condition for it's age, think only 2 non original parts being the cord would have been powder blue and ribbed and the clamp on the bag at the bottom is a plumbers thing as i remember they had a chunky / heavy metal one.

Think i'm going to pull out all stops to get this one

That is cool looking. It's sort of design like a car the opal I believe is the name. That I'd look into. Keep us posted you can hopefully let us know how she runs.
