Hi I'm T120V more commonly known as Russ. I use T120V as it's the model number of a Bonnie I bought in '78. It's was 650, 5 speed,disc brake & best bike I've owned. I still have it.

Hi

Hello 800 gang,

I'm the oily rag (aka Alex). Recently gained two 820 series 2's. One sterling saloon (running project) one fast back base 820 (bit rough but roadworthy)
Had lots of British classics over the years, mainly rovers/MG/Honda the occasional vauxhall and currently a 75 work horse.
Have to say the 800 has grown on me. From not that interested in them to owning 2! In only a couple of months.
I do my own mechanical work on my cars (time and weather permitting) and love a good tinkering session.
Currently looking for a right wing and front bumper in oxford blue if any are about.

Anyway, look forward to comparing oil leaks with you guys!

All the best

Hello Oily rag,

Welcome aboard the flagship (in another members words) I have a few oily rags as well thanks to the oil leak on my 827 Coupe. (It needs new rocker gaskets which I have ready to fit soon). Been into 800's all my life and driven them since I learned to drive in my mums back in 2007. (Great car for learning in with no ABS and lots of brake travel) With an old car you get a better feel for dynamics and responses I think.
Hope you find the forum very useful.
Which model do you need a wing for? I might have a reasonable coupe or fastback/saloon wing (coupe are different)

It's a stick shift? No, It's a grip shift!

Hi Charles,

I have 2 820s. Both 1998 series 2. The sterling is ox blue metallic and could use a replacement driver's side wing.
The other is a base 820i fast back. I'm probably going to sell it as I've got too much going on at the moment. I want to concerntrate on the sterling.

Might offer the fast back on here as a project

I haven't got wings for the Mk2 Saloon/Fastback come to think of it now (sorry). It's the Mk1 wings I have (which I suppose would still fit but then you would need to change your indicator for a Mk1 - which I don't think you would want to do!)

Welcome aboard Alex! If it's any help i know of a front wing and bumper in Midnight Blue, i know that's not a match for Oxford Blue but it's fairly close and would be a good start. Depends what area you are in though as to whether it would be viable for you.
Cheers,
Dave

Welcome Daniel!

Have i read that right, you have a 1989 820 Vitesse??? That's not a typo and it should be a 1998 820 Vitesse?

If you think that question is a bit strange, in the UK in 1989 the only Vitesse available was the 827 Vitesse.
Cheers,
Dave
