I'm from Australia and been a buggy enthusiast since buying my first buggy 25 years ago. I've owned quite a lot as Ive enjoyed working/restoring them. This is my current one, it will never be sold.

Great photos. Looks immaculate. Is there a large friendly buggy community in Australia or are you a lone trail blazer?

Thanks for the welcome. We have a good small buggy following in the Newcastle area. hoping to use mine a bit more, got new seats getting trimmed at the moment as the ones in it aren't real comfy on long trips and I have back issues and they jar it on bumpy roads. New bikini top coming soon too.

Welcome aboard, lovely looking buggy

New bikini top coming soon too.

I assume that's to keep the sun off rather than the rain like ours
