Tratty's J&S Buggy

Postby Brad » Mon Jun 20, 2011 2:23 pm

I was sure there was a build on Tratty's J&S around here somewhere but can't for the life of me find it. If someone know where it is let me know and I will merge it.

Anyway a few pics I will get som ebetter ones later .. I will let Tratty fill in the rest.

That is the nicest J&S I've seen and I bet the only buggy with cruise control! Nice barwork too - well done.

Thanks Neil, I have some big trips planned in the future and I think the cruise control is going to save me some big flat spots on my heel :D
