If, and it depends on the missus well be going from Newcastle. Doesnt make sense to drive 2/3 hrs south.

Paul I promise you the journey is almost the best bit! I love long buggy cruises :D

When you start asking all the questions, that's when school starts. There is such a wealth of information available from the collective community on here and it's free tuition! Having had my buggy garaged for 33 years and moved house with it 5 times, as I didn't know how to finish it, within 6 weeks of joining this club it was mot'd and on the road. That was in 2016. Since then I've met loads of great like-minded fools who love tinkering with buggies and most of all who love driving them. I've been to weekend events all over the UK and to Germany for IBW - we're going to Holland in June 2019 for IBW this year which is a must do if you can.
Welcome Hugh 2 (Hewtoo :D)

Beach Buggy General Help / Re: Help with bumper and washers

My washer bottle sits on the tunnel at the front and yes I welded two brackets to the beam for the front bumper.

Ruben I am not sure what else one would call it other than 'have' when describing a body piercing ?

Who got left behind at Harwich ? Well that person stood in the Harwich Morrisons car park and watched buggys head west into a darkening sky, so I'd say they were the smart one.


Yep, gonna give you that one :D

I've only got one 'second' yet it seems you are a right regular dueler with 'seconds'.

My actual 'second' is another yellow buggy and I think I now need to get some distance between me here in the Welsh Marches and those clinging to East Coast sensibilities.

Although perhaps the duel's choice of weapons could be buggys and the challenge that of getting to and from IBW 2019 without mechanical or electrical failure !
Showing some confidence there Hugh - now let me see who it was we left behind in Harwich last time......... ;D

Zip Buggy is it the Victorian theme or specifically the imposing Queen Vic look alike that appeals ?

Actually no need to answer that as I can imagine you wearing a crown and clutching your Orb and Sceptre !

The Victorians liked to cover up bare flesh so some of the more extrovert buggy community might feel their lights were under bushels !
Sirrah! I trust thou art not casting nasturtiums! My seconds will be calling on your seconds.

Sounds like you want us to do a Victorian theme then?

That's a good one. Like that :)

Hudge if you're looking for a kit and donor car, Myles Smith on here has the lot and could be persuaded to sell it I reckon. He doesn't get on here very often so let me know if you're interested and I'll give him a nudge.

Cheers Mark, if you nudge him towards a decent steering column that would be great  ;-)up
Hudge he's got the complete project but wouldn't want to split it.

Welcome. I run a 1600TP that has been tweaked and has twin Weber IDF 40s. Getting a nice solid 80hp with 60 at the wheels. Plenty for me. I'd stick with it, as Dave says and see what you think. The fun is in the building and then it's all smiles per miles  ;D

Switzerland isn't in the EU and our licence is valid there. I hired a car with my licence in the USA. Why does anyone think our licence won't be valid in the EU? Of course it will be.

Hi I am a newbie from the U.S. California ,I have a 1961 Humbug can am,in the U.K. they made them as Beaujangles Can Am.I am interested in finding out more about your cars in comparison to mine and things alike,I have found out more about so far about my car from books etc than in the U.S

Hi Larry and welcome to the The Beach Buggy Info site.

Thank you for your PMs and can see there is a lot of similarities between our two cars, but the biggest difference is that yours drives on the wrong side of the road!

Apart from Google, a good source for reference on Humbugs and Beaujangles Can Ams is James Hales Buggy books.

I will PM you my email address so if you would like any photos uploaded on here, then feel free to send them.

One thing in your favour living in California is your weather. Woke up this morning with ice on the windowscreen!

Are there many Buggy clubs over there in the Orange State?  ;-)up

Orange State = Florida, he's in California  ;D
