Was driving along the final side street I was checking out for kerbside rubbish and this caught my eye in the dark.
Early 70s Victa utility with the mark three 160.
Complete and with no broken bits. Tank has two stroke oil at the bottom suggesting it was stored for a long time unused. Really thrilled with this totally unexpected find.

Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I couldn't believe it NormK. I think I'll hold onto this.

Thanks Tyler. They came in 125cc version as well. I don't see the need for a 160 on this but I bet it can knock down a lot of stuff.
